The 19th Annual Riverside Festival of the Arts

Easton, PA *  Sat., Sept. 19 & Sun., Sept. 20, 2015 *  10 AM – 5 PM

callingArtistsThe Arts Community of Easton is proud to present the 19th Annual Riverside Festival of the Arts, a two day outdoor event featuring fine artists, crafts people, musicians and authors.

Since 1996, the Riverside Festival has grown to include both Riverside Park and Scott Park in Historic Downtown Easton along the scenic Delaware and Lehigh Riverbanks. Each year is growing, with over 70 artist and artisan exhibitors competing in a juried Fine Art and Fine Craft competition for recognition and cash prizes. Live music will be performed in the Dell at Scott Park all weekend long. The ever-popular Plein Air art contest will be back again this year: $10.00 to enter – $1000 in prizes! This is open to all.

Once again, there will be a Children’s art projects booth, featuring art activities and “give-aways”, courtesy of one of our major sponsors - you may have heard of them;  thanks Crayola!! Scrumptious food vendors will be on-site with plenty of goodies and beverages (adult & general).

Easton resident Lily decides which cool Crayola project to embark on next!
