Fairmount Arts Crawl
April 28: A day of art and festivities in Philadelphia’s Fairmount neighborhood
April 28, 2013
More than 50 artists and 20 venues, along with thousands of visitors, come together in one neighborhood for a day of art, design, music and fun.
The entire neighborhood of Fairmount becomes a showplace for local art and music, displayed and performed on the streets and in restaurants, bars, cafes, and other local businesses — all with an open door policy.
The Arts Crawl is a day of artistic window shopping — your chance to hear quality local music, to see local poets reading their work, and to appreciate the art that is being made in Philadelphia neighborhoods every day — all the while getting to know the businesses that encourage the arts in one of Philadelphia’s most picturesque neighborhoods.
There is no entrance fee for the Arts Crawl and there’s plenty of parking in the neighborhood. You can check out the schedule of performances and activities here.

Check out the Singer Songwriter Corner at the intersection of 24th Street and Fairmount Avenue — talented local musicians will be playing all afternoon.
