Applications are OPEN for the 30th annual Doylestown Arts Festival! This beloved tradition brings a 2-day outdoor festival to the historic streets of Doylestown, PA. Featuring over 200 vendors, the festival includes local artists, sponsors, live art and demonstrations, and 5 stages of live music. All applicants are reviewed and approved by a volunteer jury. To get involved simply apply using one of the forms below. Special precautions are being planned to ensure the safety of all involved for 2021.

:: Community Impact

The Doylestown Arts Festival benefits Discover Doylestown, a 501(c)3 organization of volunteers working to make Doylestown a great community to live, work, and visit. The funds from the festival go directly back into the local community via events, town improvements, decorations, and donations to fellow organizations.

:: Attendance

The festival draws a huge crowd of families, art enthusiasts, and local residents each year. We reasonably estimate that the festival sees 20,000 - 30,000 attendees throughout the weekend, weather pending. In 2021 we will be planning for a much smaller attendance to ensure the safety of all involved with Covid-19 proceedures in mind.

:: Festival Features

The Doylestown Arts Festival features 160 juried artists, over 30 acts of live music across 5 stages, an array of interactive demonstrations, a food court, a kids zone with a rock wall, and dozens of pop-up events, sales and specials organized by local businesses and organizations.

:: Our Town

Doylestown is a unique small historic town in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Named the Best Small Town Cultural Scene in America in 2019 by USA Today, our community boasts an independent movie theater, a word-class art museum, a series of incredible events and dozens more cultural organizations, museums, and small businesses.

:: The Art

All of the artists who are invited to participate in the festival are independent creators crafting unique works by hand. Our artists range from fine art and photography to metal workers, jewelry designers, glass blowers, potters, and much more. There is an exquisite variety of art each year.

:: A Tradition

The Doylestown Arts Festival began humbly in 1991. Since then the community support, quality of art, variety of activities, and media coverage of the annual tradition has grown steadily. From a single street to a town-wide celebration, it has been an enormous joy to see this tradition come to life and continue to grow.
