The South End Arts and Business Association (SEABA) was founded in 1986 under the name of Greater Pine Street Business Association by a group of artists and business owners who shared the entrepreneurial spirit that characterizes the South End of today. The ongoing goal of SEABA is promoting the creative community and economic vitality of the South End of Burlington.

The South End has grown to accommodate what is now the largest concentration of incubator businesses per square mile in the entire State of Vermont. With such a high concentration of artists and entrepreneurs, SEABA was able to approach the Vermont State House and officially declare the area the South End Arts District.

We invite you to join us each fall, the weekend following Labor Day, for the annual South End Art Hop. Named one of Vermont’s Top Ten Events, it was originally founded in 1992 and continues to grow and evolve in exciting ways each year. The three-day event brings 35,000 visitors to the area to explore open artist studios, businesses, breweries, music, and food.

Be sure to explore all the South End Arts District has to offer throughout the year as well! We are honored to represent such a diverse and creative community, enjoy!
