Showcasing + Creating Art as a Gloucester Community
After a three-year hiatus, the Gloucester Education Foundation and Gloucester Public Schools are thrilled to relaunch the Gloucester Student Arts Festival, a daylong celebration of the arts in the Gloucester Public Schools!
The festival will take place on Saturday, May 13 from noon-5pm in downtown Gloucester, with indoor programming at City Hall, the Cape Ann Museum, and MAGMA, and an outdoor block party on Warren Street with performances, live music, art-making and dance workshops, and food trucks.
