The Salem Arts Festival invites local artists to submit their work to be considered for participation in this year’s festival. The festival takes place June 6 to 8 along Salem’s downtown corridor and features an art show, street fair, live performances and more. This year’s theme is “spice.” The submission deadline is Friday, April 11. Applications can be found and submitted through the Salem Arts Festival website, www.salemartsfestival.com. While the festival prefers electronic applications, applicants are welcome to pick up and drop off hard copies of the form at Salem Arts Festival/Salem Main Streets, 265 Essex St., Salem, MA 01970.

The city of Peabody and the Peabody Institute Library have partnered with Clark Farm to bring a community supported agriculture program to Peabody this summer, and registration is now open. In a CSA program, members agree to purchase products from a local farm throughout a season. This agreement makes members shareholders of the farm, and each week, the farm delivers the products to the library for shareholder pickup. Peabody will offer two pickup times and locations: Tuesdays, 3:30 to 5 p.m., at the Main Branch, 82 Main St.; and Tuesdays, 1 to 2:30 p.m., at the West Branch Library, 603 Lowell St. The 20-week program begins Tuesday, June 10, and costs $300 for a small share and $500 for a large share. For more information and to sign up for a share, contact Bill Clark at 978-790-3303, or whclarkjr@verizon.net.

For submission guidelines, deadlines and other information, contact Kathleen Moore at 978-232-2655, or email kmoore@endicott.edu with “ARTSFEST Submission” in the subject line.
