The Doylestown Arts Festival is an juried street festival featuring 160 artists, live music, interactive demonstrations and more. Since 1991, the festival has offered a lineup of talented artists from both local areas and afar.
We encourage artists of all mediums to join us for our 26th anniversary September 9th & 10th, 2017! The show will run from 10am-5pm each day, rain or shine. The history and popularity of our show coupled with a traditionally busy weekend in historic Doylestown makes this a weekend not to miss.
