Doylestown Arts Festival accepting artist applications


The Doylestown Arts Festival is gearing up for its 29th annual event, and is accepting artist applications now through midnight Friday, April 24.

With over 160 artists, live music, interactive booths, demonstrations, food and more, this juried street festival – held this year from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 12 and 13 – welcomes artists from near and far to apply. Accepted artists will have the opportunity to exhibit and sell their art to a vast audience at this curated seller’s market.

Tens of thousands of visitors and art enthusiasts are expected to attend the two-day extravaganza featuring a wide range of artists, with various mediums represented, including fine art, glass, woodworking, metal, pottery, illustration, photography, jewelry, textiles, interactive and recycled arts.

The festival is also looking to showcase artists who feature live art or demonstrations. All applicants are reviewed and hand-selected by a volunteer group of peers. To learn more about the application, visit

Proceeds from the event go directly back into the local community via Discover Doylestown. Since 1991, the festival has raised funds to support other local events, community initiatives, beautification efforts and donations to nearby cultural institutions and nonprofit organizations.
