New Bedford Summerfest

Eliza Gilkyson, The Kennedys, John Gorka, Cheryl Wheeler, Mark Erelli and Antje Duvekot are just some of the wealth of musical talent that will be performing at the Greater New Bedford Summerfest this weekend. The festival, which always makes the July 4 holiday even more fun, also features a wide range of arts and crafts and vendors in historic downtown New Bedford.


Musical styles vary, from the folksy and traditional to even bluegrass in the band Newfound Road, from local talents like Matt Borrello, Art Tebbetts and Barb Phaneuf, to national acts like Antje Duvekot and Cheryl Wheeler or the international sounds of Le Vent du Nord.

As usual, the festival is one of the least expensive around, $20 per day for Saturday, July 2 and Sunday, July 3 or $25 for the entire weekend. Check the website for details.

Below are just some of the artists who will be at Summerfest:
