The Chelsea Arts Collective (CAC), in collaboration with First Branch Community Collaborative, is set to host a day full of art and music, with their first annual Arts on the Green Market & Festival, Saturday, August 25th (10am-5pm), on the North Common in historic Chelsea Village.
This one-day community event will be free and open to the public and will feature thirty New England art vendors, musical performances, and culinary treats from Green Mountain Pizza Co., Sweet Doe Dairy Gelato, Chicken Wiggle Farm, and Cornerstone Catering.
Art activities for children and families will take place throughout the day, along with a silent auction of regional works to help raise funding for sustainable and ongoing community arts programming in the First Branch region. The festival schedule will include music by: singer-songwriters, Jason Baker and Doug Perkins; Arabalon drumming ensemble; the all-female trio, HEN of the Woods; and Jazz Tweed Duo.
In the spirit of Chelsea's Old Home Day, which was traditionally held in the month of August, the Arts on the Green Market & Festival aims to inspire a new tradition that is both interactive and inclusive. The festival will be followed by a Town Hall concert (7pm-9pm), featuring music by David Rosane & The Zookeepers. Taco’s Taco food truck will be on-site with dinnertime offerings (3pm-8pm).
