The WCSH 6 Sidewalk Art Festival is set for August 24. From 9:00am to 4:00pm, Downtown Portland will be a sea of artists and art lovers.
Although many participating artists are from Maine and New Hampshire, a significant number are from states up and down the Eastern Seaboard. It's exciting to welcome our first-time participants, artists who've participate for just a year or two, as well as artists who've made this Festival a part of their summer for more than 30 years!
The Festival is professionally-judged show with cash prizes. Artists have the option to participate in the judging.
Merchants and restaurants along Congress Street anticipate brisk business that Saturday. Pedestrians will once again enjoy the safety of streets closed to traffic (Congress Street between Congress Square and Monument Square, or High Street to Preble Street).
