Doylestown Arts Festival returns in September


The Doylestown Arts Festival will take over the quaint historic streets of Doylestown Borough this Sept. 10 and 11, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

With art, music, and activities for all ages, the festival will continue its mission to highlight independent artists, support small businesses, and raise awareness of the local cultural scene. Celebrating 31 years of creativity, the Doylestown Arts Festival remains free to the public, helping to boost accessibility to the arts for the entire community.

The Doylestown Arts Festival will see the normally bustling streets of Main Street, State Street, Hamilton Street, and Oakland Avenue transformed into a lively outdoor marketplace featuring unique and one-of-a-kind works of art from over 150 independent artists. Featuring five stages of live music, along with live art and interactive demonstrations, the two-day event remains one of the largest and most exciting weekends in Bucks County.

This year, festival organizers are excited to announce the first expansion of the festival in over a decade. The event will now extend down West Oakland Avenue, from Hamilton to Clinton, allowing more space for artists and activities. In addition, the festival will be joined on Sunday by the Bucks County Classic which brings the energy of pro and amateur cycling to the streets surrounding the event. All are welcome to enjoy this community celebration, rain or shine.

The Doylestown Arts Festival is made possible by a small volunteer committee of Discover Doylestown and is presented by the Thompson Organization. For information about this year’s festival, visit
