Need plans for Memorial Day weekend? Look no further, because Newburyport’s Spring Fest, an annual spring festival guaranteed to entertain the whole family, is where you’ll want to be. Stroll the streets of our coastal town May 26th & 27th from 12 am to 6 pm and enjoy a day filled with delicious food, shopping, and entertainment.

Newburyport, already a destination with delicious restaurants, waterfront views and unique local stores, will believe it or not, be even more exciting this holiday weekend, adding to the mix local arts, crafts and food vendors along the streets as well as entertainment geared toward all ages.

Swing by Market Square both Sunday and Monday for lots of fun entertainment. Get prepared to rock out with Party On, a fun upbeat cover band, that takes the stage Sunday afternoon. Then stop back on Monday and dance to mindful beats with the high energy band, Unnamed Colors followed by Billy D and the Rocke-Its, a 10 piece 50’s style band.

Grab a tasty snack on-the-go or relax at one of the many outdoor cafes like Sea LevelBrine, Ceia, and Oregano, to take in the bustle as you dine. Work off all that delicious food strolling the waterfront boardwalk, let the kids blow off some steam at the Inn Street playground, and then treat yourself to some gelato or another delicious snack from one of Spring Fest’s outdoor vendors.

From clothing to one of a kind art work to home decor, if you’re looking for a special gift or simply something for yourself, Newburyport’s downtown shops, as well as the local vendors at this Spring festival, are bound to have what you’re looking for. And don’t forgot to take a walk over to the Tannery for even more local shopping.

Organized and hosted by the Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce, who work to promote the city and all the great things it has to offer, this event will not disappoint locals and tourists alike.
