The 47th Annual Festival of the Arts

Friday, Aug 17, 2018 from 10:00am to 5:00pm


This festival has been called a 'rite of summer' by the Cape Cod Chronicle and is the premier summer arts and crafts event on Cape Cod. Held at Chase Park, just a short stroll from beautiful downtown Chatham, the festival draws approximately 10,000 collectors and attendees from throughout Cape Cod -- and well beyond. In addition to showcasing high-end arts and crafts, the family-friendly festival features a children’s arts and crafts tent, shuttle bus service and food trucks to accommodate the large number of guests. The festival is supported by a strong online, print and radio marketing budget that builds upon our long history of successful events to reach our target audience, as well as promotional banners lining Main Street to publicize the festival and draw the crowds.

Our Festival is Cape Cod's Premier Fine Arts & Crafts Festival, showcasing beautiful work. We have a wonderful variety of 120 artisans exhibiting at the show.

Exhibitors from around the country showcase one of a kind pieces including clothing, jewelry, fine woodworking, art, ceramics, graphics, metalwork, glass and much more. Delicious food trucks and an ice cream van are conveniently located in the center of the green to ensure you energy to keep exploring!

The Children’s tent features fun activities as always, including as our usual and unusual face painting. Chase Park is a short walk off Main Street, with a free shuttle bus to bring you directly to the entrance of the Festival from Parking stations at the Creative Arts Center and behind the Community Center on Route 28.

We'll see you this summer for another amazing Festival of the Arts!
