The Paradise City Arts Festival opens Memorial Day Weekend for three days of beautiful, festive fun. Whether you live nearby or you’re contemplating a scenic road trip, you know what should be on your holiday weekend calendar. More than 200 outstanding artists and makers from across America, including lots of new exhibitors, can’t wait to welcome you! Our online tickets are fast, easy and save you money.
Best of all, this show takes place in our beautiful hometown of Northampton, with its small-town ambiance and big-city features. Make a weekend of it, get a 3-day pass, and come back to the show every day!
… in hundreds of cool, jewel-like galleries and boutiques, filled to the brim with amazing art and design. Enhance your walls, your kitchen, your wardrobe, and even your garden (the Zen stone fountain is by Louis Pomerantz), by taking home your own little piece of Paradise City. Preview the works of all our exhibiting artists. Want to see who is new? Curious about this season’s Directors Picks?
Watch a maker of human-sized pots demonstrate his expertise. Create your own marbleized silk scarf. Learn how to sculpt an exotic clay fish. Place your bids at the ILI Silent Auction tables. The Sculpture Promenade is catnip for kids, Instagram heaven and full of fantastic decorating ideas for your own gardens. Take a walk on the wild side with this show’s themed exhibit “Something Wild!”
The Festival Dining Tent is the go-to place to replenish your energy with spicy curries, locavore burgers and the valley’s best fries, fresh salads, dim sum, veggie pakoras or homemade ice cream. Perk up with one of our signature cocktails from the bar, then head back into the show! There’s music all weekend while you dine: the inimitable Roger Salloom on Saturday, the Green Street Trio with two guest vocalists on Sunday and the fabulous O-Tones on Monday.
We promise to enthrall and entertain you as long as you stay. You’ll also find lots to do once the show closes for the day in the vibrant city of Northampton and the surrounding area. Check out the Paradise City Guide for ideas – pick up your free copy at the show or view it online today!
