About The Manayunk Arts Festival

Join us in celebrating The 35th Annual Manayunk Arts Festival this year!

Since 1990, the show has built itself into being the tri-state area’s largest outdoor, juried art festival featuring approximately 300 different local and nationally known artists and crafters. Collectors, buyers, and designers will visit Main Street during the two-day, closed street event. The festival is free to the public and features artists from eight different disciplines: fiber, glass, ceramics, jewelry, mixed media, painting & drawing, photography, and wood & sculpture.

Throughout the weekend, visitors can take in the art, enjoy food and beverages from Manayunk’s renowned restaurants, and cool off by shopping at Manayunk’s unique boutiques and stores.

Each year one artist’s work is chosen to be the face of the festival. It has always been an honor to the chosen work as it's featured in magazine ads, posters, billboards and TV ads.

The Emerging Artist Program features local and up-and-coming talent to the festival each year. The initiative allows new artists to begin showing and selling their work. Each artist can participate as an emerging artist for up to three years, and then are extended an invitation to participate in the show. Many of the Emerging Artists are now regular participants in the show.

The program wouldn't be possible without The Main Street Team | Real of Pennsylvania, Winnie Clowry, and PHS Pop Up Garden at Manayunk.

Over 50 emerging artists will be featured at two locations during the 2024 festival -

The Emerging Artist Tent: Right off of Main Street, The Emerging Artist Tent will be full of 30 talented artists displaying their work. This year, the Emerging Artist Tents will be housed on Grape Street and Roxborough Avenue.

Emerging Artists in the Garden: New to this year, in addition to The Emerging Artist Tent, Manayunk and PHS Pop Up Garden at Manayunk are teaming up to host 25 Emerging Artists in the Garden. The PHS Pop Up Garden at Manayunk is a vibrant seasonal hangout set in a pollinator garden dedicated to making positive social and environmental change through horticulture. This year, festival guests will be able to wander up Jamestown Avenue into the garden to explore all the art!

Congratulations to the winning Emerging Artists!

The Ten Thousand Flowers Project 

Keep an eye out for the Ten Thousand Flowers Project at this year's Manayunk Arts Festival!

This year, The Manayunk Arts Festival is collaborating with the Ten Thousand Flowers Project to bring in an interactive community art experience. Led by artist Tim Gibson, the Ten Thousand Flowers Project aims to bring communities together to create one giant temporary mural, filled with ten thousand colorful flowers. Over the course of the two day festival, visitors, artists, and residents will be able to help in the painting and creation of a beautiful collaborative piece. The mural will be set up temporarily in Canal View Park (4418 Main Street) throughout the duration of the event.
