“The Watertown Business Coalition is honored to partner with the City of Watertown and our tremendous community of Watertown artists to bring Watertown the 2nd Annual Watertown Arts Market,” says Watertown Business Coalition Co-President, Doug Orifice.

“In 2021, we wanted to provide an opportunity to show our community the resilience of our local artists and creatives, and to celebrate the numerous talents and experiences available to Watertown residents. The excitement, support and attendance for “WAM 2021” exceeded all of our expectations and showed that a community event like The Watertown Arts Market builds connections among our artists and residents.
