Kennett Arts Festival

Kennett Library is pleased to announce that it will host the second annual Kennett Arts Festival on September 23rd & 24th, 2023. All proceeds will benefit the Kennett Library.

The event will showcase more than 100 local and regional artists’ work in an array of mediums, across palates and price points. Patrons may purchase artwork as well as artisans’ jewelry, wooden items, glass designs, and much more.

The Kennett Arts Festival has something for everyone: art, live music, children’s activities, and a selection of local food vendors, including beer and wine.

The Library has served the Southern Chester County area for over 125 years and is in the process of building the new Kennett Library & Resource Center that will serve the area for generations to come.

No. The Kennett Arts Festival will be a rain or shine event! This decision is based on feedback we have received from many traveling artists who have a very tight schedule. Besides, a little rain never hurt anybody!

**Please note that festival management has the right to cancel the event due to catastrophic weather including hurricanes, tropical storms, high winds and flooding. Keep in mind we want all visitors to be safe and all artist and their art possessions to stay free from being damaged.

You get a day of art, music, food and fun! That’s right – your $5 will get you an attractive hand stamp, which can be used to come and go all day.

The Kennett Arts Festival loves our furry friends but our furry friends told us they don’t want to go to a Fine Art Festival, they’d rather take a nap at home.

September 23
10:00am to 4:00pm

September 24
12:00pm to 4:00pm

Free parking is available at the Kennett High School parking lot – 100 E South St, Kennett Square, PA 19348

You’ll find food in a couple places on the festival grounds. This way, you’re never far from a refueling station.

The Kennett Arts Festival is an equal opportunity to all art lovers – even if the beloved art is finger paintings and play-dough. In fact, there’s a special tent just for kids where they can get their faces painted, do crafts, and be otherwise distracted while mom or dad goes shopping.

No. Don’t even think about it.

Of course not! The Kennett Arts Festival is the perfect place to find gifts as unique as your loved ones.
