Saltaire Arts Trail is a community arts event held annually on the late May Bank Holiday weekend. It offers an imaginative visual arts programme, celebrating the village’s rich heritage, and offering opportunities to both emerging and established artists.

The Arts Trail prides itself in reaching out to new audiences and making art accessible to all by using imaginative venues - the internationally recognised Salts Mill, public buildings, the homes of Saltaire residents and outdoor spaces around Saltaire, to display visual art outside of traditional settings, as well as delivering new exhibitions and commissions.

The Saltaire Arts Trail is new and fresh, with commissioned contemporary artwork and with inclusive activities for all. This year the theme is Be Part of The Art and the programming aims to get the public involved in creating art as well as experiencing it.
