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 hundreds of artists and musicians who have graced our streets and stages with their work have a reason to return. The support they recieve from our locals and visitors alike help keep them creating. We take no commission on their sales, only a flat rate booth fee. We love our artists. In return, they make this festival possible.
Our local businesses, eateries, and cultural organizations have been impacted by the events of the past year and a half just like other small towns across the world. Each year one of our goals is to contribute to the sustainability and long term success of our community by bringing attention and visitors to Doylestown from all across the United States. This year in particular we ask that you take time to explore our town and support the local businesses that make it such a great place to live.
