Due to COVID-19, the Manayunk Arts Festival was canceled in 2020 and instead a much smaller event took place.
Those who missed the long-running festival on Main Street will be happy to hear it is back for 2021, happening Saturday, June 26 and Sunday, June 27. However, there will be a new format for the 32nd year of the popular event.
Groups of artists will be separated into different sections to space out the crowds. Instead of walking straight down Main Street to see all the art, visitors will need to visit the various "pods," located at 4100 Main St., 4162 Main St. and 107 Levering St., among others.
The Manayunk Arts Festival features artists skilled in fibers, glass, ceramics, jewelry, mixed media, painting, drawing, photography, wood and sculpture.
Also, back for the eighth year, 17 local and up-and-coming artists will be featured in the Emerging Artist Display, located in one of the pods.
In between shopping the many different artworks at the festival, visitors can make a full day out of the experience and enjoy food and drink from Manayunk’s restaurants along Main Street.
Saturday, June 26 and Sunday, June 27
Beginning at 11 a.m. | Free to attend
Main Street, Philadelphia, PA 19127
