Community Arts Center Fine Arts and Crafts Festival
September 21 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Now in its 17th year, the Community Arts Center’s Fine Arts and Crafts Festival features original artwork by more than 60 of the area’s finest artists and artisans who are selected by a discerning panel of judges.
Over 3,500 visitors attend the Festival each year. It is a great family activity, with fun children’s activities, live music, artists’ demonstrations, and food from local restaurants. Admission is free, and parking is available on nearby streets and the Swarthmore SEPTA parking lot.
Park Avenue in Swarthmore is the perfect setting for the festival, providing easy access by public transportation, a beautiful setting near Borough Hall, and proximity to the weekly farmers’ market. This event is at the heart of the Community Arts Center’s mission to encourage broad participation in the arts, by providing the opportunity for people to view and purchase some of the finest contemporary art and craft in the area, and contributing to the rich cultural life of our community.
