About Art in the Park

Each Labor Day weekend, artists from the Monadnock Region and beyond gather to display and sell their art.

This traditional festival brings people together to celebrate the visual arts in a sublime setting.

The open-air event makes it easy to meet and talk with the public and other artists.

Most artists return year after year, demonstrating the sales potential of this decades-old event.
