How many artists will be there?

At Manayunk Arts Festival there will be 300 artists, including an Emerging Artists tent.

Will there be any street closures?

Yes, Main Street will be closed.

How do I get there?

  • Driving: There are two exits off of I-76 that take you into Manayunk: Exit 338 (Belmont Ave/Green Lane) and Exit 340A (Lincoln Drive/Kelly Drive). We recommend parking at the Green Lane lot (located on Green Lane between Main Street and Cresson Street) or parking at either the Wissahickon or Ivy Ridge Station and taking the train to the Manayunk stop.
  • Shuttle Services: Shuttle buses will run from two different parking lots down to the Manayunk Arts Festival. Pick up the shuttles at 555 City Avenue (Bala Cynwyd) or at the Ivy Ridge Train Station (4910 Umbria Street), and for a round-trip donation to North Light Community Center, you can be dropped off right at the entrance to the festival!


  • Taxis, Ubers, and Lyfts: Call a taxi or download the Uber app or Lyft app to get a ride into Manayunk!
  • Trail Directions: Stay active and eco-friendly by biking to the Manayunk Arts Festival! Take Kelly Drive from Center City or the Schuykill River Trail from all parts of the Philadelphia region, or visit the Bike Coalition of Greater Philadelphia for more details and biking maps.

Will there be handicap parking?

Yes! There will be handicap parking in the Levering Street lot. This parking lot is at the corner of Main and Levering Street. You can access this lot by turning onto Levering Street from Cresson Street. Normal parking rates will apply.

Am I allowed to bring my pet?

Of course you are! Manayunk always welcomes pets.
