The streets of Downtown Hingham will come alive on Sunday, Oct. 20, from noon to 4 p.m., with the sounds of music, the beauty of local art, and tastes of local food. The downtown area is growing ever more vibrant. Come experience it at the 14th annual Hingham Arts Walk. Grab some friends and go for a stroll. There will be over 40 artists presenting their work on the sidewalks
and in the shops and studios. The art will range from fine art photography to jewelry and mixed media, to youth art, pottery, and woodworking. The event will offer something for everyone.
If you enjoy live music, this is the place to come. Cherophones, an alternative youth rock band, will play at the Station Street parking lot, and Jazzlove — a jazzy R&B band will play in the Square.
Bring your kids, who will enjoy the Children’s Craft Market of Hingham, featuring handmade crafts and playing music. Located on the tunnel cap by Winston Flowers from 12-1:30 p.m., this is a wonderful community event that supports children as creators and entrepreneurs. Bring small change and come for 15 minutes or stay awhile to hear the young musicians who will be performing during the market.
Come stroll South, North, and Main Streets and follow the balloons! Balloons will be posted at all participating stores. Balloons will also line the flagpoles in celebration of the arts walk from the Square down to the harbor on Water Street (White Magdalena) to the lower section of North Street (Assembly, Sara Campbell, William Raveis). Come enjoy some local flavors from various food trucks by Thyme Traveling, Wahlburgers, and Sadie Mae’s.
The Hingham Arts Walk is organized and funded by the Downtown Association with support from the artists and the Hingham Cultural Council. Admission is free. For more information check out the event map/guide on October 17 at participating locations or visit discoverhingham.org.
Wear some comfortable shoes, grab a coffee, and enjoy the stroll!
