Description

Dates:
June 25-26, 2016

Overview

One of the largest outdoor arts festivals in the Delaware Valley, the Manayunk Arts Festival draws nearly 200,000 people to its historic Main Street for a two-day festival of arts, crafts, music, food and more.

Vendors

This year, hundreds of artists from all over the country are slated to sell their handmade items in individual tents. Items for sale include art in eight different categories — fiber, glass and ceramics, photography, wood and sculpture, painting and drawing, jewelry, mixed media and emerging artist.

Main Street Restaurants and Shops

As many of the restaurants and shops along Main Street Manayunk are right in the thick of the festival action, they are slated to open their doors to festival dwellers over the course of the weekend.

Look forward to extended spots for alfresco dining at restaurants along the street and food and drink specials, too.

Other Information

Main Street Manayunk will be closed to vehicular traffic as the festival takes over Main Street from Green to Shurs Lane.

The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, allowing for plenty of time to support the array of artisans.

Getting There

Your best bet? Public transportation. Manayunk is easily accessible by train: SEPTA’s Manayunk/Norristown Line drops guests off at the Manayunk stop which is mere blocks from the hub of the festival. SEPTA buses 35 and 61 leave guests steps from the vendors.

Shuttle buses will leave from two different locations: 555 City Avenue (which will also make a stop at Shurs Lane below Ridge Avenue) and the Ivy Ridge Train Station (which will also make a stop at Hermitage Street and Domino Lane). Both shuttles leave guests in the thick of the merriment. Shuttle rides are $4 roundtrip for adults and $2 for children.
