Every spring, for one whole weekend, the Brookside Shopping District is transformed into the wildly popular Brookside Art Annual! This three-day event gives top artists from around the country the opportunity to share and sell their masterpieces at one of the nation’s best art shows!

Each year, dozens and dozens of artists arrive with works of art ranging from paintings and sculptures to jewelry, woodworking, ceramics, photography, and more! While visitors admire art, there are a variety of activities to partake in, as well as numerous local vendors selling delicious food and drinks!

Shopping Events

Periodically throughout the year, Brookside loves to feature its local businesses with special shopping events!

Brookside’s Sip & Shop Days are always a great time! It’s the perfect time to come check out the historic shops and chat with local business owners. During Sip & Shop Days, businesses will run exclusive specials and provide tasty adult beverages like wine and seltzers to enjoy while shopping and mingling! Usually, the event takes place on June 21st, the Summer Solstice! Once the shopping is over, visitors are invited to dine at one of Brookside’s fantastic eateries and stick around for live music performed by local musicians.

And later on in the summer, make sure to check out Brookside’s Sidewalk Sale! Businesses make it even easier to explore what they have to offer by bringing some of their favorite goods out on the sidewalk so shoppers can walk, shop, and mingle in the sun!
