ArtWeek SouthCoast is an annual festival celebrating creativity in our communities.

Join us Thursday, May 9 through Sunday, May 19, 2024.

Enjoy 50+ unique and creative experiences that are hands-on, interactive or offer behind-the-scenes access to artists or the creative process. From gallery shows to live performances, poetry readings to painting demos, and so much more, there’s something for you to enjoy with family and friends.

Originally launched in May 2021 as SouthCoast SpringArts, the inspiration for this undertaking was to continue in the spirit of ArtWeek MA, a statewide creative festival for all, presented by Highland Street Foundation and produced by the Boch Center.

ArtWeek SouthCoast is presented by the cities of Fall River and New Bedford, and towns of Dartmouth, Marion, Westport, Fairhaven, Mattapoisett, and Wareham.
