The Polish Hill Arts Fest is one of the city’s liveliest summer events. The Fest attracts people of all ages from across the city and includes a broad range of vendors from fine craftspeople to young, local artists. Live music, unique performances and fun activities for the kiddos. Plus, we always have amazing local food vendors. This year, for the first time, the Arts Fest is 100% volunteer-run. And (as always) we look to you to help us make it happen.
Sunday, July 16th, noon to 9pm (this’ll be awesome, just wait).
If you would like to participate in the the fun, as an artist or vendor, please reveal your interest through the following link :
