Sandwich, the oldest town on Cape Cod, is very fortunate to have a lively arts community. The Sandwich Arts Alliance’s motto is “Empowering the Arts – Enriching the Community” and they fulfill that mission very well. The nonprofit organization is led by artists and promotes the arts in its many forms: visual, literary, and performing! Enriching the community also includes helping friends of the arts to become healthier and more creative themselves.
Upcoming events include everything from a presentation on the benefits of a vegetarian diet to classes for youths and adults to concerts on area stages and participatory music festivals.

Enjoy Suede in concert at the Sandwich Town Hall on Saturday, April 13, 2019. This “back by popular demand” performer brings her music as one of the Village Concert Series. This performer is sometimes called “Diva la Difference” and is known to be smooth, sassy, and is the consummate entertainer. Suede’s voice is like a mix of Bette Midler, Diana Krall, and Adele. You can enjoy this concert by purchasing a General Admission ticket for just $30.
When you visit Sandwich this summer you will see beautifully painted Adirondack chairs all around the town. Each chair in the The Adirondack Chair Trail is sponsored by a business in our village, painted by a SAA member artist, and will be displayed in front of the business from Memorial Day through Labor Day. In September, the chairs will auctioned off to help support the Sandwich Arts Alliance.
Make your reservation to stay at Isaiah Jones Homestead and plan to be entertained or educated at one of the Art Alliance’s Events.
