Elevate the Arts Fest 2024

August 11 @ 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Our Elevate the Arts Fest is returning to downtown Keene on Sunday, August 11th from 11AM-4PM! This outdoor community arts festival and fundraiser will be held rain or shine in the Commercial Street lot on Gilbo Ave.

Look forward to an artisan market hosted by 17ROX Artist Studios. Performances from established and emerging performers at an open mic hosted by local band Touch the Ocean, do-it-yourself creative activities, food trucks, and more!

Elevate the Arts Fest represents Arts Alive’s mission of increasing access to art, culture, and creativity as a human right. Admission to the festival, activities, and performances are free, enabling attendees to direct their resources towards supporting local artists at the artisan market. As an all-ages, community event, the festival offers child-friendly activities such as face painting, collaborative mural painting, and large lawn games.

The festival will close with a raffle fundraiser. Attendees can enter to win large and small prizes from the artisan market vendors and generous local businesses and organizations who support the arts. Tickets will be available for purchase throughout the event.

Community members are welcome to get involved by volunteering, selling work at the artist/artisan market, or participating in the open mic. Volunteer roles include but are not limited to: setting up tents, barricades or games, selling raffle tickets, assisting musicians or demo artists with setup, welcoming and providing information for visitors, breaking down the event and cleaning up. Those interested can find more information and sign up at

Arts Alive is grateful to the 2024 event’s sponsors: The Putnam Foundation, Savings Bank of Walpole, Mascoma Bank, Hamblet Electric, Fairfield’s Auto Group, 17ROX Artist Studios and The Production House.
