While white sails will be billowing in Essex Harbor and the Connecticut River on Father’s Day weekend, the Essex Green will also be a sea of dazzling white canvas. Tents, that is. At the annual Summer Arts Festival on the Essex Green, June 18-19.
Under these tents, festival-goers can discover new works by emerging and established artists and artisans from Connecticut, New England and the tri-state area, according to organizer Barbara Nair, founder of the Arts Center Killingworth and of the Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook. The Festival is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and from 11 p.m. to 5 p.m.
