Our Proud Santanero History, Art & Culture
Our arts and culture scene is the spirit of Santa Ana. Art is one of the ways we communicate, which is why you’ll see it nearly everywhere.
You'll find unique masterpieces on our downtown walls, hung inside galleries, and even on the streets. The Artwalk paints downtown every first Saturday of the month with live art, music, and gallery exhibitions.
History, as well as art, is around every one of our street corners. Explored by the Spanish as early as 1769, our city’s rich past is evident in our architecture. One of the best ways to soak in our local history is on the Downtown Santa Ana walking tour.
