The Festival of the Arts is back! 

We are thrilled to announce, that after a two year hiatus, the beloved Festival of the Arts is back, in-person, with all our traditional events, entertainment, and offerings! The 45th Annual Festival of the Arts will be held on Memorial Day weekend, May 28 & 29, from 10 a.m. to 5 pm with a Preview Party Fundraiser Friday, May 27, from 7 - 10 p.m.

The Festival of the Arts is a two-day block-party-style celebration of our community’s collective creativity, set in historic Marshfield Hills Village, and also our biggest annual fundraiser. The Festival encompasses fine art, photography, sculpture, live performances by musicians, dancers and thespians, plein air demos, children’s activities, artisans’ creations, delicious fare prepared by local food trucks, and more! 

We are looking for business and individual sponsors to help fund the Festival. Please read more about Festival Sponsorship at the link below.
