One of our responsibilities as the newly-designated Beverly Arts District is to support local artists (those who live, work or study in Beverly) as much as we can. This year, we are reserving a percentage of the spaces at Arts Fest for local artists, and we will have a way to identify your booth as that of a local artist.
Arts Fest is on Saturday, June 18, 2016 from 10am-4pm. Each year 100+ fine artists and crafters set up their canopies in downtown Beverly and sell their artwork. 2,000 visitors attend the event. Each 10×10 space is $125.
We encourage you to apply using the form below:
The deadline for new Beverly artists to apply is Thursday, March 24 at 5pm.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. Thanks!
Please note – This is our 14th year and Arts Fest has gotten more popular each year. This is great for the festival but it means that we always have more artists apply than we have room to accept. The jurying process is highly competitive. We only accept a certain percentage of artists in each category in order to make the event successful for our artists. In particular, the jewelry category is extremely competitive.
The process works as follows:
- Beverly-based artists apply by March 24
- Jury reviews all applications and selects artists
- If we get more applications than we can accept in a given category, we may need to use a lottery to determine which jury-selected artists will be invited to register
- We will notify you within several weeks after the deadline to let you know if you can register for Arts Fest
