Entertainment

The Salem Art Fair & Festival hosts a range of entertainment on two stages in Bush’s Pasture Park. The Main Stage is located in a natural amphitheater setting, under the canopy of towering, old-growth oaks and in close proximity to food and drink booths (including a craft beer and wine garden from Gilgamesh Brewing). Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets to sit on the grass, but a limited number of chairs and tables are also available. It is on the Main Stage that the Salem Art Fair & Festival hosts its headlining acts on Friday and Saturday evening of the event, after the Artist Marketplace has closed.

Located just south of the Main Stage in the Kids’ Court area is the Family Stage. Family Stage acts are often interactive and upbeat, appealing specifically to younger audiences.

Your ticket purchase to the Salem Art Fair & Festival includes all entertainment acts on the day of entry. Rates are listed at the bottom of this page.
