The Essex Street Fair is a two-day event held in downtown Salem and is part of the Slemn Heritage Festivities! This years fair includes a new format with a juried arts & crafts open market throughout the weekend. Crafters, artisans and food vendors from in and around Salem will join local merchants in selling their wares on Essex Street & surroundings. This free event will run the length of Essex Street from the Daniel Low Building to the Hawthorne Hotel.
Fun for all ages this street festival has something for everyone. Crafts, jewelry, paintings, stained glass, and other unique items will be featured along the Essex Street Pedestrian Mall. Buskers, face painters, and strolling musicians will entertain crowds.
