About the Festival
East Your Art Out!
HarborArts Festival 2014 is the fourth annual anniversary celebration of the HarborArts Shipyard Gallery. The tradition continues every September with live music and DJ performances, local artists and artisans exhibiting and selling their work, street theatre, celebrated local food and beverages, mobile galleries, installations, and much more!
This year’s festival will foster an important opportunity to heighten awareness of climate change and issues surrounding sea level rise. We Are Music will bring in prominent thinkers in the climate change movement and experts in climate and sea level rise to conduct a public panel and questionnaire the day of the event. Community members will be invited to participate in the discussion and bring forth questions and concerns. A host of Boston and New England-based environmental groups will also be present on site so attendees can learn about and get involved with the efforts already being made to combat these issues in the area. Our goal is to grow the greater awareness of and local level participation in a global movement to address climate change.
Under the bright sun, Harbor Arts welcomes people of all ages from East Boston and all over the region for activities the whole family can enjoy. As the sun sets, we'll dance the night away under the stars, with sweeping views of the Boston Skyline!
During the day, visitors will be delighted with the sounds of local bands and performers. With an evening hosted by and featuring Boston’s DJ and production duo Soul Clap, this is sure to be a night of music not to be missed! Soul Clap will headline the evening and bring some of the top names in music from the Boston area and beyond.
Presented in association with We Are Music and Soul Clap Records.

Early Bird registration is open thru July 31 at $75, and will remain open thru September 6 at $100. The registration fee reserves your 10x10’ space at the festival. You may reserve up to 2 spaces per order. This does not include rental of tents, tables and chairs. Artists can opt to bring their own setup (Tent, tables, chairs), limited to 10x10’, and save money on the booth. The low cost of our registration makes vending at HarborArts Festival accessible to a wider range of vendors/exhibitors, emerging artists and students, and allows for a more diverse artist population at the event. Pre-installed Exhibition Stations (each includes 10x10’ tent, 2 tables, 4 chairs) can be added to your order for vendor/exhibitors that would prefer to reserve a complete station that will be set up for them when they arrive at the event.
