Barnstable Accepting Applications for 2020 Hyannis Artist Shanty Program

HYANNIS – The Town of Barnstable is currently accepting applications for artists and artisans for the 2020 Hyannis HyArts Cultural District Artist Shanty program.

The shanties are located on Ocean Street along the Walkway-to-the-Sea from Main Street to Hyannis Harbor.

Seven are at Bismore Park and five are located at the Harbor Overlook.

Applications are received on rolling basis until all spots are filled. The review of applications will begin November 1.

The recent expansion of the shanty program to two locations creates an additional attraction for visitors walking from Main Street to Hyannis Harbor through the Hyannis Village Green.

It also provides more affordable selling space and increased exposure for local artists and artisans.

The shanties are open weekends May through mid-June, seven days a week through the end of September, weekends in October and during special events in November and December.
