Annual July 4th Festival Calling All Artists, Crafters and Vendors

The Bridgewater Arts & Music Festival, held on July 4th (rain date of July 5th) on the grounds of Bridgewater State University is calling all artisans, crafters, artists and vendors to register for the annual festival. The children’s area will offer activities, games, face painting and a storyteller, along with the Roaming Railroad train. Performances by the Arts for Youth program, along with live music and dance will occur throughout the early afternoon. The art show with local artists will be on display with prizes awarded to a winner in each category. Registration forms will be available online at or you may call 508-443-4155 for information.

The festival opens at 10:00 a.m., July 4 on the grounds of Bridgewater State University, “this is where visitors congregate immediately following the town parade”, said organizer Nora Tarr.

Bridgewater State University, as it has for the last several years, donated the use of the grounds, electricity to make this day a full day of events for families in Bridgewater and the surrounding communities. Our continuing goal is to provide as many free events as possible, and to present all types of art including music, poetry and the spoken word, dance, painting, photography, pottery, jewelry design, creative and unique clothing. Our artisans, crafters and vendors will display and sell their wares. We are also fortunate to have a display/art contest of community artists, “All types of art will be on display,” said Tarr.
