Join us along with tens of thousands of visitors for the annual three day arts festival!

The South End Arts District in Burlington, Vermont is home to a whole host of artist studios, designers, makers, creative businesses, event venues, breweries, coffee shops, restaurants, vintage stores, the farmer’s market, and….oh, so much more!

The South End Art Hop is THE time to celebrate all that the area has to offer us year-round. The 72 page Art Hop program guide will serve as a resource for finding these gems during the event, and throughout the year, with the addition of open hours along with contact information. Your registration will secure your spot in the guide book and programming for the event. We are excited to have you involved, thank you for all of your great work!
