The 2020 Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Show will be held virtually from Friday, June 5, through June 7, due to COVID-19 pandemic. Normally, the art show would take place outside in Rittenhouse Square Park. The photo, taken in April 2020, show above shows people in the park wearing face masks.

The 2020 Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Show, which was founded in 1928, will not take place outside in Rittenhouse this June due to COVID-19. 

Instead, the arts fest will continue its 93-year streak by becoming a virtual event between Friday, June 5, through June 7.
