There’s never a dull moment on Main Street Manayunk, whether you’re checking out its cute local boutiques on a Sunday afternoon or grabbing a happy hour drink at one of the many bustling bars. But there’s something special going on from Saturday, June 24th to Sunday, June 25th: the 28th Annual Manayunk Arts Festival.
Each year, the arts fest attracts hundreds of makers and artists from around the Philadelphia area, and 2017 will be no different. When the festival hits Main Street, expect to see about 300 different artists selling their unique handmade items—and another 200,000 guests flooding the blocked-off street over the course of the weekend. Don’t miss the Emerging Artist Tent, a relatively new addition that strictly showcases up-and-coming artists from the area. Admission to the arts festival is free, so don’t miss it!
