BETHEL – The 16th annual Bethel Art Fair on Saturday, July 2, will offer activities for the family on Bethel Common. More than 50 artists and craftspeople will show and sell their wares.

Live entertainment will be offered from 11:30 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. on Bethel’s gazebo. Those attending can bring a lawn chair and listen to the tunes of the Mollyockett Chapter of the Sweet Adelines.

There will be food available and face-painting in the children’s area. Children can also create their own work of art, compliments of the Mahoosuc Kids Association.

The fair will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The day will end with a display of fireworks that may be viewed from the Common or the back lawn of the Bethel Inn Resort and Country Club.
