Proudly celebrating our 13th year, Salem Arts Festival 2021 once again brings together Salem Main Streets and the Creative Collective to shine a light on the arts and culture in and around Salem. This unique partnership increases the value and reach of your sponsorship dollars, and that upward trend continues into 2021. Our sponsors are part of the fabric of the festival and we look forward to working with you to make this our best year yet.

Art will heal us and help us recover from the challenges we have and continue to face. Arts and Culture are an integral part of day-to-day life in Salem and this annual festival has become a source of pride and revenue for hundreds of creative professionals and a major economic boost to the local community with over 6000 attendees annually. Through the COVID crisis the creative community has really stepped up to help us get through a lot of challenges and we want to find ways that we can support the creative community and contribute to the wellness of our City with the Festival as a platform and as an event.

This year, the festival committee is working closely with the City of Salem and the local Board of Health to establish a hybrid event that will offer hope and vibrancy in person and "virtually" Please stay tuned for more information as we get more guidance and updates from the state and the city.

Sponsorship of the Salem Arts Festival supports all facets of the weekend-long festival. From supporting the work of more than 150 artists and performers to keeping this family-friendly event free and open to over 7,000 North Shore residents, sponsorship of the Salem Arts Festival is a powerful way to support downtown Salem with vibrant, eclectic, and socially-conscious art and culture. We are looking for sponsors to support this dynamic and exciting festival! Please consider supporting the Salem Arts Festival in 2019!
