Riverside Festival of the Arts - Easton, PA

2018 will be the 22nd annual Festival of the Arts and it will be the biggest and best one yet! This event is associated with Arts Community of Easton. We are non-profit and run completely by the generosity of sponsors and amazing volunteers. Join us from 10-5 daily, RAIN or SHINE!

Hosted along the scenic Delaware and Leigh Valley River banks, over 70 juried Fine Art and Craftspeople exhibit and sell their own 'hand-made' works along downtown historic Easton's scenic riverside, at Riverside Park & Scott Park. Our fine artists come from many areas using all fields of mediums enchanting and inspiring.

All weekend you will find two stages very active with great live music by regional musicians, stilt walkers, performance artists, visual arts, art projects, demonstrations in pottery, painting to glass blowing, scrumptious food and drink (adult beverages too) to enjoy, tons of creative fun.

In Riverside Park, you may find our interactive children's area, partially supported by Crayola, which is always fun for the children. And for the adults and children..."Hair as Art" and "Wing Wars!" where you decide the winners!

Our amazing artists and artisans are offered a juried fine competition with up to $2000.00 in cash prizes! We will also have our 9th year  Plein Air Art Competition (outdoors). For only $40.00 you may enter the contest on the day which runs during the festival.
