Staff Pick: Canstruction at Gallery Night


A foundation of the Society for Design Administration (SDA), Canstruction® is a trademarked design/build competition currently held in cities throughout North America and countries around the world. Teams of local architects, engineers and students mentored by these professionals compete to design and build giant structures made entirely out of canned foods. Canstruction® will be held in conjunction with Gallery Night, where you can stroll through downtown Pensacola and experience an eclectic array of music, art and cuisine while exploring the galleries and businesses featuring the works of dozens of local artists.

Much to our delight, and thanks to a sponsorship from Stella Artois, Palafox Street will be closed to automotive use from Garden Street to Government Street, making foot traffic safer and more convenient.
