ArtBeat, the Somerville Arts Council’s annual multicultural arts showcase, returns to Davis Square on Saturday, July 16. Now in its 36th year (!), ArtBeat features an eclectic mix of music, dance, theater, food, performance, and activities, drawing thousands of visitors.
The festival will feature 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. Artists will literally and figuratively interpret the concept, incorporating it into their performances and pieces.
ArtBeat kicks off at 11 a.m.
