Manchester Festival by the Sea celebrates art on Cape Ann

This annual festival will feature local artists' booths, live music, and locally grown and prepared foods, culminating in a free family concert in harborside Masconomo Park. This all-day event will highlight not only the idyllic beauty of Cape Ann, but also the incredible talent for which the area has become synonymous.

Tapping into the area's wealth of musical and artistic talents, the family friendly festival will feature live music on two stages throughout the day, culminating in an evening waterfront concert in Masconomo Park. While walking through town, visitors will be able to peruse the art and handcrafted items created by some of the area's finest artists, craftsmen, and jewelry designers.
