The Old Lyme Arts District brings you year-round arts and culture along our historic Lyme Street.
Since the early 20th century Old Lyme has been known to artists and art lovers alike as a haven for the arts. Over the past 100 years artists have painted in Old Lyme, capturing its timeless beauty. Located on a serene inlet at the mouth of the Connecticut River, much of the character that drew painters to the area remains today. Its noteworthy houses built by sea captains, art museum, art college, galleries, shops and delightful inns makes Old Lyme one of New England’s most unique destinations.
The Old Lyme Arts District showcases art exhibitions and galleries, musical performances, specialty shopping, lectures and classes, cultural history, artistic dining and lodging, walking tours, and the annual
Midsummer Festival (last Saturday in July).
