Join us for Old Town Untapped, Pompano Beach’s monthly Craft Brew & Arts Festival on the first Friday of every month!  Old Town Untapped was originally created to highlight Pompano’s various craft breweries but has since grown to feature many other local vendors, live music by local bands, a DJ, craft beer, food trucks, local artists and much more!

On the first Friday of every month, “Old Town” in Pompano Beach becomes the epicenter for art, food, and music!

Each event features live music, a DJ, craft beer, food trucks, arts & crafts vendors, and gallery tours at Bailey Contemporary Arts (BaCA). Old Town Untapped takes place at NE 1st Street and N. Flagler Avenue at 6 – 10 pm and is free for all ages to attend.

BaCA AiR Featured Artist: Louiveste La Croix

Louiveste La Croix’s exhibit, Express Culture: Roots and Revolutions debuts as part of our festivities honoring Haitian Heritage Month, during the May 3rd Old Town Untapped. Born in Haiti and currently based in South Florida, La Croix is  a mixed-media artist who uses acrylics, watercolor, and gouache to portray his vision, which ranges from abstract expressionism to surrealism to applied impressions. La Croix uses art to convey life messages and highlight spiritual truths. The Miami creative considers his art to be therapeutic relief and an autotelic experience, one which has an end or purpose in itself. Through taking risks and expressing himself in an authentic way, he hopes others are able to achieve healing through his art.

He studied Fine Art at Broward College and has exhibited his work internationally, including at Escape2NY in Brooklyn, NY (2022), Moves Love Miami in Wynwood, FL (2021), and A Night for the Culture Juneteenth Art Show in Los Angeles, CA (2021). His latest work was showcased in Cosmic Ledger at 1310 Gallery in Fort Lauderdale in 2023.
