ArtBeat Returns to Davis Square July 16

ArtBeat, the Somerville Arts Council's annual multicultural arts showcase, returns to Davis Square on Saturday, July 16 (rain date: July 17). Now in its 36th year, ArtBeat features an eclectic mix of music, dance, theater, food, performance, and activities. Come enjoy nearly 100 vendors and community groups, two stages of music, and a dance showcase at the Somerville Theater, all inspired by this year's theme: Rise. 

ArtBeat runs from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. throughout Davis Square, with a kickoff parade featuring the School of HONK at 10:30 a.m. Attendance is free, but a suggested donation of $3 will get you an ArtBeat dog tag. Please see the attached PDF for a full schedule of events or visit
