This weekend, nearly 300 artists will set up shop inside big white tents along Main Street in Manayunk for the 22nd annual Manayunk Arts Festival.

It’s a chance for the public to view and purchase all types of artwork including paintings, fiber, ceramics, jewelry, glass art, sculptures and much more. 

Main Street will be closed to cars all day Saturday and Sunday from Green Lane to Shurs Lane. 

“We’re the largest juried, outdoor arts and crafts festival in the region,” said Jane Lipton, executive director of the Manayunk Development Corporation. If weather permits, the festival crowd can swell to as many as 100,000 people per day. 

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. tomorrow. 

Round trip shuttles are available for $3 at the 555 City Avenue building and the Ivy Ridge Train Station on Umbria Street. 

Your best bet for transportation to Manayunk is to take SEPTA’s Manayunk-Norristown regional rail line which drops you off right behind Main Street.
