As always, we thank the Town of Marblehead for the opportunity to present our program in the beautiful natural concert venue that is Crocker Park and to you, for your generous support of the Festival all these 58 years!


Please Note: Many Artists will be offering their Merchandise for sale. We invite you to visit the Crocker Park Gazebo take home the music and products of your favorite performers.


Local Artists Showcase: On Thursday, Friday & Saturday afternoons beginning at noon through three-thirty pm, the Performing Arts Committee & Concerts @ Crocker Park feature local artists on the big stage. We encourage you to stop by and support these emerging artists.

Rain Location:  We’re going for it at Crocker Park! If it rains—we’ll be trying to get the show in using the Gazebo, as a “second stage”. Listen for the music and come join us!
