Salem Arts Festival Fashion Fundraiser on April 8

Salem Arts Festival Logo Updated 2015SALEM – The third annual Salem Arts Festival Fashion Show Fundraiser will be held on Friday, April 8, 2016 from 7 to 10PM with a night of local food, fashion, drink, dancing, and fun in support of one of Salem’s greatest festivals. The event will once again be held in the beautiful and historic Old Town Hall, and has been generously sponsored by People’s United Bank.


“The Fashion Show gets bigger and better every year, and it’s the perfect way to introduce the renewed energy behind the Arts Festival,” says Kylie Sullivan, Executive Director of Salem Main Streets, the community non-profit organization which oversees the Festival.


“The need for financial support is critical for the success of the festival, which annually welcomes over 5,000 attendees to downtown Salem over the first weekend in June.  We are committed to keeping the festival free and open to the public, but that means we need to raise some substantial funds.”


The Fashion Show, hosted by local comedian and Salem Comedy & Spirits Festival founder Mark Scalia, highlights a growing number of local boutiques – including Modern Millie Vintage & Consignments, The Boutique, Ocean Chic Boutique & Waterbar, TBT Post, Avalanche, RJ Coins & Jewelry, Lifebridge’s Second Chance Thrift Shop, and more! Make up will be provided by the fabulous artists at Laura Lanes Skin Care and Rouge Cosmetics. DJ Noel Snow and a number of other local performers will be on hand to set the scene and get you on the dance floor. Local food, drink, and a great raffle make the evening complete!

When? Friday, April 8, 2016 from 7 to 10PM


Where? Old Town Hall, Derby Square, Salem, MA


Cost? $25 per person, $40 VIP tickets available for an assigned seat on the catwalk and a free drink. A cash bar is also available.

The 8th Annual Salem Arts Festival will be held June 3rd to 5th, 2016.  This popular free event features over 60 artists and performers, and includes a variety of art, music, dance, and poetry performances. The family-friendly event also includes an artisan street fair, art-making activities for all ages, and a temporary community-created public art installation.  The Festival is run in collaboration with Salem Main Streets by a team of dedicated volunteers, including representatives from Creative Salem, Salem State University, the Peabody Essex Museum, and more. The Salem Arts Festival is supported in part by a grant from the Salem Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
