Music Walk partners and venues include HOWL Gallery/Tattoo, Red Rock Saloon, Spirits of Bacchus, Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center, Space 39, Cafe Matisse, French Connection Cafe, Enjewel, Happenings Magazine, Hotel Indigo, Twisted Vine Bistro, Indigo Room, Harborside Event Center, Coloring The World, City Tavern, Downtown House of Pizza, World Famous Cigar Bar, Hideaway Sports Bar, Morgan House, The Veranda Restaurant, Market America Realty, and Edward Jones Financial.

Each month has brought larger crowds and more music, with an estimated 4,000 attendees to the October event. Music Walk is organized by Andy Howl of Howl Gallery/Tattoo with the help of Roger DiCiccio of Red Rock Saloon, Suzy Lewis of Spirits of Bacchus, and Jamie Kuser of Happenings Magazine. Music Walk exists under the umbrella of the River District Alliance, a non-profit organization that manages downtown events and unifies businesses in the River District.
