(ähts) The Boston Arts Festival 2017The Boston Arts Festival will take place Saturday, September 9 & Sunday, September 10th, from 11am – 6:30 pm, at Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park. This annual event is designed to showcase the visual and performing arts in Boston.

Affectionately dubbed (ähts), it began in 2003 by Mayor Thomas M. Menino and the City of Boston’s Office of Arts, Tourism and Special Events with the mission of promoting the Open Studios happening throughout the Fall in Boston’s neighborhoods.

The Boston Arts Festival is now run by the organizers of the Beacon Hill Art Walk and Artists Crossing Gallery, and will launch Boston’s Arts Open Studios season featuring more than 70 juried local visual artists and craftspeople, plus local musicians performing on the Waterfront Stage throughout the day.

The event brings over 50,000 visitors to Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park, on Boston Harbor, where they can meet the artists and craftspeople who are there to share a wide variety of art and high-end craft work, including painting, photography, ceramics, jewelry and sculpture, and much more.

For more information on the (ähts) festival, call 617-635-3911 or visit www.cityofboston.gov/arts,
