The Hillsborough Arts Council has been active in developing and supporting the arts locally for more than 30 years. In spring and summer on the last Friday of each month the town square comes alive with music, vendors and an Art Walk visiting downtown galleries, while sidewalk cafes provide food and drink to complement the festivities. Fall brings the annual Handmade Parade that rivals Macy’s, but with giant puppets created by the participants – some even on stilts- who take over Churton Street for the march and convene with observers to celebrate at the Burwell School, a local historic site. To brighten the winter months, the Arts Council presents Parlor Concerts, musical presentations that take place in some of the town’s historic homes.

The mission of the Hillsborough Arts Council is to enrich our community through the arts.

  • Engaging diverse audiences in arts events and educational programs
  • Fostering recognition and appreciation of the arts
  • Providing avenues to artists, arts organizations and audiences for connecting with one another
