Annual Cumberland Arts Festival Blends Art, Food and Fun

Come celebrate the end of summer at the 10th annual Cumberland Arts Festival from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. August 18 at the Cumberland Town Hall. Since its debut in 2009, the event has become an annual celebration of the arts and the town of Cumberland’s Farmers’ Market.

More than 100 vendors, including everything from arts and crafts to locally grown and raised food, gather for the free event. Festival-goers will also find a variety of food vendors from festival fare offerings to food trucks. There will also be a silent auction and loads of entertainment.

Unique to this year’s festival are opportunities to experience the artistry in the paintings included in the 10 Worthy Places Plein Air Competition with the awards ceremony taking place at 1 p.m.; take part in an interactive art project suitable for all ages with Chris Tower; and to learn about monarch butterflies at the Backyard Butterflies Encounter exhibit. Entry into the butterfly tent is included with the purchase of a $5 chrysalis kit.
