The Chelsea Area Festivals & Events (CAFE) Committee has been carefully considering the next steps for the 2021 summer series of events. CAFE continues to remain steadfast in its mission to promote quality performing and visual arts throughout the year.
“Together, we are committed to bringing fun and vibrancy to downtown Chelsea in a way that is flexible, adaptable, and prioritizes the well-being of our community,” said CAFE Board President Craig Common.
The committee outlined their re-imagined 2021 events as follows:
Given the changes outlined above, the committee also decided not to hold a formal sponsorship drive in 2021 for Sounds & Sights. Fortunately, the expected costs for the limited 2021 Sounds & Sights on Thursday Nights can be covered thanks to sponsorships and grants collected in 2020.
“We look forward to enjoying Sounds & Sights on Thursday Nights and SculptureWalk together in 2021 and to the return of the Summer Festival including the Social Tent and Main Stage, KidZone, Chalk Art Contest, Art Market, and the Classic Car Show in 2022,” said CAFE Boardmember Gary Munce.
CAFE is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that coordinates "SculptureWalk Chelsea," "Sounds and Sights on Thursday Nights," and "Sounds and Sights Festival.” Their open-air events are known for music, dance, comedy, art, and family entertainment, which contribute to Chelsea being a great place to live, work and visit. Their events are possible thanks to the support of local businesses, residents, non-profits, and many volunteers in the community.
