2024 HOPS ON HIGH

High Street comes alive with extra special Gallery Hops in 2024.

In celebration of 40 years of Short North Gallery Hop, Gallery Hop will turn Open Streets with a new, communal seasonal series called ‘Hops on High’. Discover all that the Short North Arts District has to offer as portions of High Street are closed to traffic and made to be enjoyed as the largest pedestrian-only experience in Central Ohio. Each Hops on High event will continue to feature all that is special about the legendary monthly tradition that is the Short North Gallery Hop and will focus on the multidimensional experiences that make the Short North Arts District a centralized creative hub with something for everyone in Columbus.

Monthly experiences include: the Hops on High Market at Gallery Hop curated in partnership with Matchmakers Market, arts programming, music, and more on Columbus’ most visible street. To participate, apply below.
