Legacy Projects > Cumberland Arts Goes to Market Cumberland Arts Goes to Market

Cumberland Arts Goes to Market is an annual arts and crafts festival held in the town of Cumberland. It includes an assembly of local artisans and musicians, food artisans and producers, serving an intergenerational clientele numbering around 3,000 annually. The eighth annual season of Cumberland Arts Goes to Market will coincide with Indiana’s Bicentennial celebration. This provides unique opportunity to lift up the rich history of the community in the context of the spirit of the day. Toward that end, historical reenactments, professional storytelling, history walks, partnerships with local historical organizations, and the like, will enhance the 2016 festival.
