The latest regarding Cocheco Arts Festival

Given the situation surrounding COVID-19, the Greater Dover Chamber of Commerce is adapting to bring the arts to downtown in a safe and enjoyable format. We are hard at work planning for a drive-in festival for August, 14, 15, and 16.

We will kick off the weekend at St. John's United Methodist Church with a Friday movie night showing a local short film as well as a commercial movie. On Saturday, we will have kids performances in the morning followed by headlining performances that night, both held at the church. We will wrap up the weekend on Sunday showcasing the visual arts at the Seacoast Growers Farmers Market in upper Henry Law Park.

Stay tuned for more details and check out  cochechoartsfestival.org  for updates!
