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. Though with a different name, the on-going goal of SEABA is promoting the community and economic vitality of the South End of Burlington.

As more and more artists and business owners moved to the South End in search of affordable rental spaces, 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, it is only logical that SEABA promotes the Fusion of Culture and Commerce in the name of fulfilling its mission, as best embodied by The South End Art Hop—an event that SEABA has been organizing for the last 18 years.
