As many of you may know, I attended college in Beverly, MA and currently work here as well so I do try to share events going on here in the good ol' North Shore. In fact, this Saturday, June 20th, Beverly will be hosting their 13th annual arts festival from 10am-4pm on Cabot Street. The great thing about this event? It goes on rain or shine!
Arts Fest Beverly is free to attend and fun for the whole family. There will be over 100 juried fine artists and crafters, music and entertainment, kids' activities, art-on-the-spot creations and local fresh food trucks (my favorite). Get the full schedule of events here. Arts Fest Beverly is part of the Beverly Main Streets initiative to promote and enhance downtown Beverly’s economic vitality, cultural and historic resources and quality of life.
Beverly Main Streets are proud to be a member of the national Main Streets movement. The Main Streets organization is part of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Most Main Streets programs follow the same structure, have similar missions, and similar committees. Each sets its own work plan according to the needs of the community. They are a 501c3 organization. However, they are not a membership organization; everything Beverly Main Streets does is supported by public and private funding and the money they raise from events. If you are a business or resident of the downtown district, you are automatically part of Beverly Main Streets.
So join Beverly Main Streets at Arts Fest Beverly 2015 this weekend and devour the details of their initiative while getting your creative juices flowing. It will be a guaranteed masterpiece!
