WCSH Sidewalk Art Festival

WCSH Sidewalk Art Festival

Saturday in late August
The WCSH 6 Sidewalk Art Festival is held every year on a Saturday in late August in Portland, Maine. More than 300 artists typically display their work at the outdoor event, which draws thousands of visitors to the festival area. The exhibit is juried, with cash prizes for first, second, and third place. For the fourth prize, the WCSH 6 Purchase Prize, cash is awarded, plus the winning art work becomes part of the permanent art collection of the festival sponsor, local television station WCSH 6. August 2007 marked the 42nd anniversary of the festival. Its organizers bill it as the largest and oldest one-day art show in northern New England.
