35th Annual International Festival

Summer is here and planning is underway for the 35th Annual International Festival in Peabody!  Plan to come and enjoy all the diversity that the City of Peabody has to offer at the largest exhibition of culture on the North Shore!

The 2018 Festival will be held on Sunday, September 16th, 2018. 


Free and open to the public, the festival will run from 12-5pm and will showcase the wonderful diversity of the city through its art and food.  Many ethnic foods will be featured amont the different booths lining Main Street. In addition, you can view artwork by different North Shore Artists at the International Festival Galleria.  This year, for the first time ever, artists will also be given an opportunity to participate in an outdoor art sale in a new venture we are calling "Fine Art on Foster Street".  Space will be provided for the display and sale of artwork in booths set up on Foster Street, adjacent to the Galleria Art Tent.  For just a $25 fee, artists will have the opportunity to display and sell their works to the 50,000+ visitors that attend the Festival each year.  Additionally, artists who are willing to conduct demonstrations of their art form during the festival may apply to have their booth fee waived.  Continuous ethnic entertainment will be featured through the course of the day on two stages.

Bring the whole family to enjoy the festival and visit the Kid's Day Celebration at the East End Veteran's Memorial Park.  You will be treated to music, arts & crafts, moon bounces, a magician, dancing demonstrations, and much more. 

Applications and information regarding the festival are available on the City of Peabody website: www.Peabody-MA.Gov
