It's time to start thinking about one of our favorite events of the year--Arts Fest Beverly! Mark your calendar for Saturday, June 17 from 10am-4pm. We will once again be closing down a portion of Cabot St to make way for over 125 juried artist booths, as well as local food, entertainment, and kids' activities.

If you are an interested artist, performer, or food vendor, we invite you to apply now! Artist applications will remain open until March 10, after which we will continue to accept and review on a rolling basis if there are remaining spaces available. If you apply by March 10, our jury will review your work and you will hear from us by the end of March.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to Becki with any questions or thoughts. We can't wait to share another Arts Fest with you--this will be our 20th year!
