The 10th Annual Melrose Arts Festival will be at Memorial Hall Friday April 24 to Sunday April 26, 2015.  This juried fine arts and fine crafts show features over 40 exhibitors and draws a large attendance from Melrose and throughout the region. The Festival includes live music and catered food. Applications from artists are now being accepted.


The Beebe Estate is a community resource at 235 West Foster St. Each month a different art exhibit has been held for over a decade.  Click here for Beebe Estate Gallery calendar for 2014. These shows feature a First Friday Opening Reception and Saturday gallery hours. Melrose was settled in the 1640's, and remained a rural community for 200 years.  With the arrival of trains in the 1840's it became a desirable suburb of Boston.  The rapid expansion created the Victorian  ambience of much of this fine small city.
