:: Overview

Designed to illuminate the region’s ongoing commitment to arts and culture, the Doylestown Arts Festival annually features 160 juried artists, live music on 5 stages, live art and interactive demonstrations. Founded in 1991 by a small volunteer group of businesses and residents, the festival now celebrates 30 years of showcasing creativity in Bucks County. The highly anticipated two-day street festival attracts thousands of visitors each year.

2020 saw the fesitval go virtual due to COVID-19. In 2021 we're committed to returning safely to our roots on the street in order to fulfill our mission of supporting local artists and businesses. Our COVID-19 policies will be updated as the event approaches.

The 30th annual event is scheduled for Saturday, September 11th & Sunday 12th, from 10am-5pm. The festival is free to the public. On Sunday the Thompson Bucks County Classic joins us with high speed bike races surrounding town. Follow us for news and updates! The Doylestown Arts Festival is organized by Discover Doylestown and made possible by The Thompson Organization and our generous sponsors.
