12 Days of Arts

December 1, 2017, 8:00 am - December 12, 2017, 10:00 pm

Join us for a scavenger hunt of arts prizes and other goodies.

This 12 day hunt is totally free and social media driven with 120 chances to win, plus two Grand Prizes!

Follow the hashtag #12DaysofArts. Each day we’ll post a clue on Twitter and Facebook. It could come at any time. It could be a photo or written or both.

The first ten people to decode the clue and arrive at the secret location (theater, gallery, museum, event venue, etc.) at the specified time win take home goodie bags filled with downtown arts surprises.

Use the #12DaysofArts hash on social media to publicly talk about the contest and sites (even if you don’t win that day’s prize) to be entered to win one of two grand prizes! So take those selfies!

(You can check directly at https://www.facebook.com/sjdowntown, or on Twitter at @sj_downtown.)

Last year winners took home museum memberships, ice skating passes, tickets to special shows and events. Discover what’s in this year’s goodie bags when you play #12DaysofArts
