about the show

The Paradise City Arts Festival is New England's most exciting and prestigious show of fine and functional art. Taking place during the busy holiday weekend, this event attracts strong attendance, an educated clientele and extraordinary media coverage. 30% of the show's attendees live in the region; 70% travel to Northampton from New England, New York and beyond.

Located on Interstate-91 just 15 minutes north of the Massachusetts Turnpike, Northampton is under an hour from Hartford, the Berkshires and southern Vermont; under two hours from Boston, Albany and southern Connecticut; less than three hours from New York City. Designated 'The Best Small Art Town in America' and one of AmericanStyle magazine's top 'Art Destinations', Northampton is a cultural, dining and shopping destination for visitors from all over the Northeast.

the facility

The Three County Fairgrounds is set against rolling hills by the majestic Connecticut River, and is highly visible to the millions of tourists driving on I-91. The show is completely under cover and takes place entirely indoors, in the Arena and Morgan Buildings and in a newly constructed Exhibition Building.

The new Exhibition Building is adjacent to a redesigned entrance to the show. All indoor spaces are carpeted, with a mixture of natural and artificial light. The booths in the Morgan Buildings have built-in storage.

A limited number of outdoor spaces are available for those artists showing large-scale sculpture. A very large outdoor Sculpture Garden, set between the Morgan Buildings, provides exhibiting artists with a beautiful setting for landscape oriented pieces. An open courtyard, formed by the intersection of the Arena, Morgan and Exhibition Buildings and the Sculpture Garden, provides placement for additional sculpture, greenery and a convenient resting area for attendees.


Paradise City provides wall-to-wall carpeting in all indoor spaces, free jewelry lock-up, dedicated exhibitor restrooms, storage, free and convenient exhibitor parking areas and help with load-in and load-out. Advance promotional materials are supplied at no charge. Full convention services, including pipe and drape rental and drayage, are available. Paradise City's Festival Dining Tent, featuring some of Northampton's most acclaimed restaurants and live jazz, provides an upscale respite for collectors navigating the show.
