Manayunk Arts Festival
One of the largest outdoor arts festivals in the Delaware Valley, the Manayunk Arts Festival draws nearly 200,000 collectors, buyers and designers to its historic Main Street for a two-day event of arts, crafts, music, food and more.
Hundreds of local and national artists from around the country head to the annual event to sell handmade items of all sorts.
The festival offers visitors the chance to browse a variety of goods while basking in a festival atmosphere full of food and other al fresco fun on open streets in Manayunk.
A two-day event of arts, crafts, music, food and more.
Items for sale at the Manayunk Arts Festival include art in eight different categories — fiber, glass and ceramics, photography, wood and sculpture, painting and drawing, jewelry, mixed media and emerging artist. That means you’ll be able to score everything from walnut bowls to vintage threads to hand-crafted hammocks.
With many of the restaurants and shops along Main Street Manayunk headquartered right in the thick of the festival action, visitors will find an abundance of neighborhood spots to check out in between viewing the festival’s massive arts display.
Look forward to extended spots for al fresco dining at restaurants along the street and food and drink specials, too.
The festival is a completely free event with pay-as-you-go food, drink and shopping.
With numerous blocks closed to traffic along Main Street, parking is difficult and driving is not recommended.
Public transportation options include SEPTA’s Manayunk/Norristown Line, which takes riders to the Manayunk stop, just a short walk from all the activities on Main Street. SEPTA Bus routes 35 and 61 also drop guests off mere steps from the festival.
Active types can ride into Manayunk on two wheels, biking along Kelly Drive from Center City along the Schuylkill River Trail.
The festival typically runs shuttle buses throughout the day but check the official website for details.
