The Winthrop Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce is accepting applications from artists and crafters who would like to take part in Winthrop’s 29th Sidewalk Art Festival. The festival is set for 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20, in downtown Winthrop.

Last year the festival included live music and food from local restaurants and drew hundreds of people. This year, the chamber hopes to add several new artists, increase community involvement and offer a variety of entertainment and refreshments. For an application, visit, call 377-8020 or email [email protected].

The show is juried and artists’ work will be reviewed before acceptance. The early registration discount for applications received before June 15 is $50; or $60 after June 15. The final deadline for registration is Aug. 1.

The chamber also seeks businesses, nonprofit groups or volunteers who would like to sponsor the festival or get involved in planning or assisting with the event.
