Every community has its uniqueness. Essex Junction, Vermont has many great characteristics: a walkable downtown, civic-minded citizens, small-town concern for others, a growing ethnic diversity, a great school system, and many technologically skilled workers and several advanced manufacturing facilities.

steAmfest, a 2-day arts festival set to hit the streets of Essex Junction, Vermont  September 21 & 22 will celebrate the Arts through an art-hop-style Friday night festival and a Saturday Maker Fair, maker-space lab, food and music, that address how aesthetics are applied to the STEM fields. Through the theme "The Art of Disruption", steAmfest 2017 uses a showcase of art and exhibitions that highlight what happens when we experience the STEM fields though the lens of Art and Aesthetics.

steAmfest,  a project of the Essex Hub, has a mission to use arts and engagement as an economic engine in downtown Essex.  For more information about the event or our organization, or Heart and Soul our registered 501(c)3 non-profit fiscal sponsor, please reach out to us! 

The Essex Hub operates a co-working location at 15 Pearl Street and a co-creating art studio at 9 Main Street. The Essex Hub is building a community of women and friends dedicated to growing a creative economy and businesses that celebrate and support creative and generative work.
