Initially founded in 2012 as an extension of Cultivate Contemporary Dance Festival, Bethlehem ArtWalk has taken a life of its own. From the very beginning, this much-loved festival been the collaboration of two passionate Bethlehem residents committed to enriching the community they care so much about.
Bethlehem ArtWalk is a free, self-guided explosion of art and creativity on Main Street Bethlehem, New Hampshire. Considered a celebration of art, commerce and community, this 12-hour event brings together art lovers and community friends to a vibrant mountain town.
With ad hoc art galleries popping up all along Route 302, live musical performances, street performers and hands-on activities, this festival has quickly grown to be a well-loved and much-anticipated annual event.
The Bethlehem ArtWalk is a community-driven initiative, whose mission is threefold:
- To enliven the creative economy of Bethlehem, by enhancing partnerships between local businesses and the art community.
- To promote and established emerging artists, as well as public access to the arts.
- To celebrate creativity and community in our town and region.
Come… be a part of it!
