27th Annual Doylestown Arts Festival

Doylestown art

Doylestown will once again host the Doylestown Arts Festival, a two-day celebration that is expected to draw tens of thousands of visitors from the mid-Atlantic region. The festival will be held on Doylestown's quaint, historical downtown streets‑converted to lively pedestrian-only avenues during the event--from 10 a.m to 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 8 and Sunday, September 9. This year, for the first time, the Festival will be preceded by Art Week, a new event that is intended to celebrate Doylestown as a year-round center for arts and culture. Planned for September 2 through 7, Art Week will showcase both permanent and temporary installations in local museums, galleries, storefronts, restaurants, and other venues. Founded in 1991, the Doylestown Arts Festival is now in its 27th year. Designed to illuminate the town's ongoing commitment to arts, crafts, culture, and tourism, the 2018 festival will feature 160 juried artists, live music on five stages, local food vendors, art-making and interactive demonstrations. On Sunday, The Thompson Bucks County Classic will roll into town with six bike races involving professionals, amateurs, children, and historical high wheel bicycles.  Christine Hensel Triantos, director of marketing and communications at the James A. Michener Art Museum, the cultural partner of the Doylestown Arts Festival, said the annual event amplifies the regional commitment to arts and culture, and brings new audiences to the Michener, a leading American art museum housed in a dramatically transformed prison in Doylestown. "We are always delighted to welcome new visitors, and embrace this chance to introduce new audiences to our museum as well as to the rich cultural and artistic fabric of our small but very special town." The Doylestown Arts Festival is made possible by a small volunteer committee of Discover Doylestown and is presented by the Thompson Organization. Major sponsors of the Doylestown Arts Festival include Steaz, Berkshire Hathaway, and Penn Community Bank.
