Chelsea is located along the first branch of the White River and is an eclectic community with a rich history of agriculture and civic-mindedness.
The Arts on the Green Festival is held on the North Common in Historic Chelsea Village with participation from artists and artisans from all across New England. Last year, the full day of music and activities drew over 700 art lovers from the Upper Valley and beyond.
The aim of this event is to create a unique experience that is interactive and accessible to all lovers of the arts, to foster community engagement and creativity through the arts, and to offer a space for local art-makers to showcase and sell their work.

Thank you for considering the Arts on the Green Market & Festival as your summer serving venue! Last year, our festival drew over 700 art lovers from the Upper Valley area and beyond. This year we look forward to expanding our horizons.
Please complete the form below with details about your menu, biz and setup. A copy of an up-to-date/valid serving license is required. Experience working high-volume events is preferred. Vendors local to Vermont/New England will be considered first. We are looking for a variety of food options -- comfort food and sweets to experimental and ethnic cuisine, and anything in between. Depending on your equipment and the space you will need to operate, we can offer either a spot on the Green or a parking space alongside the Common.
There is no fee to partake in this event, however we do ask that you consider a donation of your sales to local community arts programming at the end of the event day. If a vending invitation is extended to you and your biz/crew, we will send a participation agreement for you to sign committing you to the event date. We will also include you/your biz in any marketing and press materials leading up to the festival.
