Salem Arts Festival 2021 – ART WILL HAPPEN
June 6 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 11:00 am, repeating until June 6, 2021
The Salem Arts Festival promotes the arts in downtown Salem through a collaborative festival for residents and visitors providing opportunities to highlight the existing artist community and encourage general community participation in the arts. The festival is celebrating 13 years and draws over 7,000 visitors in a typical year. The festival is looking for art and performance for the sophisticated art patron as well as for the art novice, including interactive events for children. It will engage participants of diverse backgrounds and ages by reaching out to current art patrons, local students, and the community at large.
Salem Arts Festival is produced by Salem Main Streets and Creative Collective

Art will heal us and help us recover from the challenges we have and continue to face. Arts and Culture are an integral part of day-to-day life in Salem, and this annual festival has become a source of pride and revenue for hundreds of creative professionals and a major economic boost to the local community with over 7,000 attendees annually. Through the COVID crisis the creative community has stepped up to help us get through a lot of challenges and we want to find ways that we can support the creative community and contribute to the wellness of our City with the Festival as a platform and as an event.
This year, the festival committee is working closely with the City of Salem and the local Board of Health to establish a hybrid event that will offer hope and vibrancy in person and “virtually”.
