The 4th Annual Salisbury Art Stroll is on Saturday, May 14, 2016 from 10am-4pm. The Art Stroll will take place outdoors (rain or shine) along the Old Eastern Marsh Rail Trail. This paved trail parallels Route 1 (Bridge 1) in Salisbury.
There will be a dedication at 12:00 for the newly opened Stevens Nature Trail, located along the Marsh Rail Trail. We will also be rewarding the first 100 kids to complete the Art Stroll Scavenger Hunt a free gift; details will be provided at the event.
Artists and fine crafters will be set up along the trail, displaying and selling their works. There will also be food trucks, live music, demonstrations, free kids art classes, free face painting, free shaped balloons, and much more. There is ample parking and on-site porta-potties, as well as access to the restrooms at Bridge Marina and Cove Marina, thanks to their generous owners for donating access. The Art Stroll is also handicap accessible.

Info on Old Eastern Marsh Trail
The Old Eastern Marsh Trail runs for 1.4 miles between the north bank of the Merrimack River and Mudnock Road in Salisbury. The beautifully landscaped trail was built in 2010 and adds to an already impressive list of rail trails in the area. Starting from the parking lot off Friedenfels Street, the trail begins right on the north bank of the Merrimack River.
Heading north, the Old Eastern Marsh Trail passes briefly through a wooded area, where the remnants of classic New England stonewalls are visible to the left. After the trail takes a gentle turn to the left, it continues through a picturesque coastal salt marsh. The trail maintains a straight course from here, ending in a Salisbury neighborhood at Mudnock Road.
