REGARDING CORONA-VIRUS: We will continue to monitor the situation and heed any mandates posted by Vermont Governor Phil Scott. We feel our best course of action at this time, is to proceed as usual with the acceptance process for the festival, however, if we find that these mandates haven't lifted come mid-summer and we must make the decision to cancel the festival this year, all vendors will have their fees fully refunded.
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 800+ 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.
JOIN US FOR A DAY OF MUSIC & ART!
Join us for a day of music & art on the North Common in Historic Chelsea Village. Over 30 artists and artisans from around New England will be selling and displaying their finely-crafted work. This is an event for all ages!
ATTENTION FOOD VENDORS!!
Thank you for considering the Arts on the Green Market & Festival as your summer serving venue! Last year, our festival drew over 800+ art lovers from the Upper Valley area and beyond. This year we look forward to expanding our horizons.
