June Events

Have you allowed enough time to experience Gloucester? Our attractions are plentiful and varied and Cape Ann is one of Massachusetts premier tourism destinations for good reason.

• Friday, June 2 to Sunday, July 9 – Rockport Chamber Music Festival – A variety of outstanding musical performances by world-renowned musicians for people of all ages at the Shalin Liu Performance Center, Rockport.

• Friday, June 9 to Sunday, June 11 – Art in the Barn – Annual art exhibit and sale at the Cox Reservation Studio Barn, Essex, to benefit the Essex County Greenbelt Association featuring fine art, pottery, indoor and outdoor sculpture, fine crafts, and jewelry.

• (Day TBA) – Essex River Day – Those who have a boat offer a neighborly boat ride to those in town who may not have a boat and don’t have ready access to appreciating the wonders of the Essex River. This simple thought has grown into a full day of events culminating that evening with a softball game, a cook out, music and a bonfire at Memorial Park.

• Thursday, June 22 to Sunday, June 25 – St. Peter’s Fiesta – Greasy Pole, Seine Boat Races, Blessing of the Fleet, Carnival, Religious Procession.
