Children's Festival in Marblehead

The Children's Festival is just one event of many in the Marblehead Arts Festiva

How wonderful to have kids view the world through a 64-color box of Crayola Crayons instead of an 8-color box, and the Children's Festival is here to help bring out the artist in every child. The Children’s Festival is a unique "hands on" arts-based program of activities directed toward children aged ten years and younger. This year’s theme is “50 Years of Arts and Crafts” as part of Marblehead Festival of Arts.
