festivals with an uncommon attention to detail and commitment to presenting quality art and handmade craft.”

South Shore Art Center Arts Festival celebrates its 61st year and showcases craft and fine artists from New England and beyond. In addition to almost one hundred juried exhibitor booths, the Arts Festival features a juried art exhibition and members’ show, live music performances, artist demonstrations, children’s art activities and a young artist exhibition.

The Arts Festival draws over 9,000 visitors from the Greater Boston region to historic, oceanside Cohasset Common.
