Welcome to the
Pembroke Arts Festival
The 56th Annual Pembroke Arts Festival committee, consisting of many dedicated volunteers, is excited to produce another event to remember this year! We are committed to furthering an appreciation of the arts in Pembroke and surrounding areas, and we look forward to providing an enjoyable weekend for the community to come together and celebrate! In the spirit of promoting the arts we will once again be awarding scholarships to two Pembroke students for Fine Arts and Performing Arts. Scholarship winners will be announced in June and their bios will be posted on this website.
The new Community Center is currently under construction so we will hold the Festival at Hobomock Elementary School as we did last year. We will have access to both interior and exterior facilities at the school and plan to have all of our traditional elements in place. An outdoor stage has been rented and there will be a large tent for Young Artists' artwork as well as kids crafts and raffles. The juried Craft Fair will be adjacent to the tent.
Keep an eye on this page for further details as the planning proceeds. Our committee meets regularly from now until the Festival, during which time we plan our courses of action. We welcome new volunteers and sponsors so if you are interested in contributing in any capacity you may find our emails on the Contact page. Additionally on our Sponsor page you will find an opportunity to memorialize a loved one with a special award tailored to their personal love of the arts.
There will be sign ups to participate during the Festival for service hours and a good dose of community spirit! Crafters can apply to be part of the Artisan marketplace, and even pay a small fee to advertise on our Crafters page. Raffle donations are always welcome! .
Dancers, musicians, and Artists-in-Action are being booked for the weekend. Please visit our Juried and Young Artist Galleries to view the amazing work from last year still on display, and our Jurors page to find links to their wonderful artwork! Hopefully it will inspire you to keep creating and preparing to submit your entries. We look forward to a great summer celebration, and hope to see you there!
