We’re ready to kickoff the official start to summer with our biggest event of the year, The Manayunk Arts Festival! Before that happens, though, we’re here to answer the most frequently asked questions by festival visitors so you know what to expect the weekend of the festival.
What is the Manayunk Arts Festival?
The annual Manayunk Arts Festival, which is celebrating its 28th year, is the tri-state’s largest outdoor, juried arts festival! We invite you to historic Main Street where there will be nearly 300 artists presenting the best variety of fine arts and crafts from across the country. It is a rain or shine event, so come dressed according to the weather and make sure you stay hydrated!
When and where is it happening?
The festival begins on Saturday, June 24th from 11 AM - 7 PM and continues on Sunday from 11 AM - 6 PM. It stretches all the way down Main Street from Shurs Lane to Green Lane, so it will be closed for the duration of the festival.
What types of artists will be at the festival this year?
The 2017 artists and vendors feature seven different disciplines: Fiber, Glass & Ceramics, Jewelry, Mixed Media, Painting & Drawing, Photography, and Wood & Sculpture. We will also be having our Emerging Artist Tent for the fifth year at its new location on Grape Street, where you can find even more local talent! Stop by to see the wide range of talents from artists who are young or are just beginning to make a name for themselves.
