South End Art Hop



South End Art Hop: September 11-13, 2015

We here at the South End Arts & Business Association are very excited to announce the 23rd Annual South End Art Hop! The Art Hop brings thousands of residents, visitors, and the community together to celebrate the dynamic art and culture of Burlington. It has gained a reputation as being Vermont’s largest and best arts festival, and won a Seven Daysie as the Best Event/Festival. Last year over 30,000 visitors were able to experience and enjoy art exhibits, music, performance, comedy, sculpture, and fashion from over 500 participating artists at over 100 locations throughout Burlington’s South End Arts District.

The South End Art Hop is a three day event occurring on the weekend following the Labor Day holiday. It attracts over 30,000 visitors, the majority from outside Burlington. Visitors are attracted to the South End artist’s studios, and local businesses that are refit as art galleries and exhibition sites for the more than 500 participating artists. The event celebrates the unique characteristics of the Pine Street corridor, in particular the development of concentrated creative and artistic activity that has been established in numerous re-purposed factories and warehouses within the District. This corridor has been designated, and recognized, as the South End Arts District.

It takes hundreds of volunteers to make the Art Hop happen. Thank YOU!
