Arts, Crafts and more: The Arts Market is back

Find jewelry, handmade crafts and handmade pieces, meet its artists and have a great time exploring the stalls.   

 

 

The Arts Market opened for its 11th season on Saturday, June 2nd. Between 9 am and 3pm, Bicentennial Square will be full of music, artisans and fine art.  

 

Creativity is the MO for the event that started back in 2008 and each year brings more and more people to Concord. The market allows visitors to discover hidden talents and find unique pieces. 

 

Whether you’re an arts fan, a collector, or someone trying to spend a relaxed Saturday morning, the market is the perfect place to be.

 

If you’re gathering family and friends to have breakfast and take a walk downtown, you might find musicians performing. On opening day (June 2nd) the Arabalon Drumming Group will be in the square. 

 

This is an opportunity to bring artists closer to the community, to display their pieces and support their work. Vendors can still reach out to the organizers to get their own spot at the venue with the criteria being imagination.  

 

The event is free and open to everyone. For further exploration visitors can make the five minute walk to the Capitol and find the Farmers’ Market where they can buy local vegetables, homemade breads and have a snack. 

 

In Concord Saturdays are fun throughout the season. The Arts Market will run every week until September 29, and between June 21stand 23rd, the Market partners with Intown Concord for a 3-day Market Days Festival with eating, shopping and music engaging the community to support the arts.
