Atmospheric walk whilst viewing all the artworks - from basic to expensive. Conveniently located near tourist office and Chateaux Frontenac. I purchased a lovely copper etching tryptic which I will frame as a wonderful memento of my time in magical Quebec City. There is certainly no undue pressure to buy - just enjoy the artworks.

Swing through and look at the art of Old Quebec City... Nice etchings, prints and watercolors in different styles all in one place. Good alternative to postcards

The stalls line this narrow pedestrian street displaying the work of local artists. Much of the art is themed on locations in and around Quebec City which make for great keepsakes of a special trip. Those manning the booths (not always the artists) are very informative if you take the time to ask about a process or a piece you... More

Many artists sell paintings and drawings on this street. I bought a beautiful watercolor. It's a good place to get local art at reasonable prices

Quebec City has SO much to offer and to see. This is one on a long list. Its a relatively small area of artists and their paintings, typically water paints. The prices are not too bad in comparison to other spots we've seen in other cities.

If you're looking for a souvenir less tacky than the usual t-shirt or mug, try coming down and meeting some local artists. You can take a piece of Quebec home with you for a reasonable price and meet the people who make the art. The church next to the street also has booths where artisans are showing off wares such...

This is a must see-- the artwork is amazing and the artists are more than willing to talk to you about their work. They are also very low key-- no pressure to buy--and they encourage you to explore all of the styles on display before buying a piece.

Some very talented artists display their work along here - some pieces are stunning. Worth a quick walk to visit and have a look around. The best place in the area to buy some art, as you can get some good deals

I love this little street in Old Quebec city. You can really find amazing paintings and art! I haven't purchased anything, but even if you don't it's worth going just to look at the art!
