Experience The Manayunk Arts Festival In Philadelphia

Friday, June 16, 2017

The Manayunk Arts Festival is a neighborhood-wide celebration of art in the historic district of Manayunk in Philadelphia, PA. Every year, 300 artists from all over the country line Main Street to sell and display their photography, jewelry, paintings and more. Besides shopping for one of a kind art, visitors are invited to dine al fresco at the various restaurants and visit the Emerging Artists Tent which showcases young and up-and-coming artists. This year will be the 28th annual Manayunk, and it takes place on the 24th and 25th of June. Get there in style, with The Franklin Chauffeur!

ONE OF THE LARGEST OUTDOOR ARTS FAIRS IN THE NORTHEAST

The Manayunk Arts Festival hosts hundreds of artists and welcomes more than 200,000 festival goers throughout its two-day run. These artists, from all over the country, will gather together to sell their handmade items in individual tents. Items for sale include art in seven different categories: fiberglass and ceramics, photography, wood and sculpture, painting and drawing, jewelry and mixed media. Look forward to one-of-a-kind wooden creations, scarves, capes for youngsters, collages made of botanicals and more. For the sixth year running, an emerging artist tent will exhibit work by fresh and undiscovered locals, giving burgeoning artists the chance to show and sell their wares. Although Philadelphia has many festivals, the Manayunk has a special place in the heart of the art community.

EAT, DRINK, AND BE MERRY!

The arts on display may be the festival’s highlight, but festival goers should leave time for eating and drinking in Manayunk, too. The festival itself includes traditional street fare, but look to Main Street Manayunk eateries to dish a wide variety of food catering for all tastes. With at least 50 dining spots in the town, almost every craving can be satisfied. Popular Main Street spots include Winnie’s Le Bus, Han Dynasty, Derek’s and the tucked away Manayunk Brewery and Restaurant. This is the perfect opportunity to experience Philadelphia culture, whether you’ve been sent to Philly on business or are planning on having a romantic getaway!
