In a rebirth of an annual Beacon, NY tradition, Windows on Main Street invites local artists to explore themes of art as cultural currency. The persistent drum of artists working here and their collective hum have been instrumental in the creation of both intangible and known economic value in Beacon. As the city’s economic landscape transforms, BeaconArts sees this project as a means to raise awareness of the vital but sometimes invisible role artists play. Want to get involved as an Artist, Business or Supporter? Now is your chance.

Guests are given Discount Booklets featuring coupons for local shops, galleries and eateries with Immersion Dollars to spend in Beacon. Businesses and Artists can still submit an offering to go inside the booklet. Beaconites can attend the event as well to get in on the deals and beer!

A Little Beacon Space
291 Main Street

A Little Beacon Blog's Space, located in the heart of Beacon's historic business district, is perfect for company meetings, gatherings, workshops, and other creations you have planned. We just got our second review!

"Renting this space was perfect for our small, creative company retreat. We had everything we needed to have a productive day, and the expectations were clearly laid out ahead of time in a transparent way. There's great parking (not always a given in Beacon), and you're in the thick of things when it comes to walking around after your event is over. 5/5, will retreat there again."
- Alex Panagiotopoulos, Kingston Creative
