Welcome to the 55th Annual Pembroke Arts Festival of 2022!

The 55th Annual Pembroke Arts Festival is now in the planning stages.  I look forward to working once again with our outstanding committee consisting of many long time dedicated volunteers.  We are committed to furthering an appreciation of the arts in Pembroke and environs, and also 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 .

The new Community Center will most likely be under construction so the committee is planning to hold the Festival in an alternate location this year.  We do plan to hold a physical event as long as it can be done safely.  I anticipate, and sincerely hope, that circumstances will improve to the point where we can have all of our traditional elements in place.  I think we are all ready to come together and just have fun!

Keep an eye on this page for further details as the planning proceeds.  Our committee meets monthly from now until the Festival, during which time we decide democratically on 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 who valued the arts with a special award in their name.  On our Volunteer page there will be sign ups to participate during the Festival for service hours or just for fun, and maybe a staff t-shirt :)  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, and Scholarship applications are being accepted now through April 1st.  So explore our website and bear with us while we update over the course of the next several weeks.

Meanwhile please visit our Juried and Young Artist Galleries to view the amazing work still on display for the foreseeable future.  Hopefully it will inspire you to keep creating and preparing your entries for 2022!
