Covington White Linen for Public Art, presented by the Covington Business Association (CBA), celebrates the close of summer with a free soirée in downtown Covington on Saturday, August 19, 2023, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Covington White Linen for Public Art has quickly become one of the Northshore’s most popular and well-attended affairs, showcasing the Northshore’s vast array of artists, restaurants, shops, and more – all in the name of public art. Local businesses donate a percentage of their pre-tax sales during the event to the Covington Public Art Fund, created in 2015. 

Pedestrians are invited to shop, stroll, eat and imbibe while enjoying a variety of local vendors, live music, art demonstrations and more. Local art galleries, shops, restaurants and bars will also be open for business, providing special attractions and beverages for patrons to enjoy, as well as live music after hours. This free event takes place on the third Saturday each August throughout Covington’s Cultural Arts District, generally Boston Street from Lee Lane to Columbia Street, both of which are closed to vehicle traffic.

Like other "white linen" events in the region, patrons are encouraged to don their white summer attire that, for the fashion-conscious, ends with Labor Day. Come out for an elegant close to the summer season with a shop, look and stroll. For more information, visit For current weather information, follow them on Facebook at
