The fifth annual Cumberland Arts Goes to Market will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on August 17, in the historic town of Cumberland. More than 100 art, craft and farmers’ market vendors will transform Saturn Street, usually a quiet side street between Cumberland Town Hall and Cumberland First Baptist Church, into a hub of art, music, food and fun activities.
The free festival will showcase a wide variety of art in many forms including fiber, jewelry, silver, acrylics, glass, furniture and more plus offer a wide variety of events including demonstrations, performances and live music on two stages. Featured performers include Irish Airs, Wax Chaotic, and Herculean Cheese Storm. Several food trucks will offer a variety of tasty options with Chef Dan, NY Slice, Indiana Buddhist Center, and Two Sisters Cakery and Bakery.
A Kids’ Zone will host many activities including a performance by AngiCat of Silly Safari at 1 p.m. “Art” The Walking Man, a colorful, 10-foot, 6-inch steel statue, will be on loan from the Hancock County Arts Council for the event. “Art” loves to have his picture taken with festival visitors.
Cumberland Arts Goes to Market began in 2009 as a collaboration between the town and Cumberland Arts of Cumberland First Baptist Church. The third Saturday in August marks the day that arts and market are blended together into an annual celebration of great food, entertainment and the beauty of art. The event has grown in size and attendance each year, offering a variety of experiences for the entire family to enjoy.
