ABOUT RIVERFEST Music, art, and the environment take center stage at the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance's (DVAA) annual street festival. Overlooking the Delaware River, Riverfest embodies the spirit of our river valley and highlights the artists and musicians who live and work here. The annual event attracts over a thousand attendees.
The Times Herald-Record writes "there are street fairs and then there is Riverfest." It features a unique selection of artist booths, enticing food vendors, and environmental information booths, as well as a Kids' Corner, River Dogs (on) Parade, and more.
Each year our audiences anticipate a high quality of vendors. DVAA works closely with selected vendors to maximize their experience. We provide hands-on volunteer staff to ensure each vendor has a quick and smooth load-in and set-up. We market the event far and wide to ensure our vendors have plenty of opportunities to connect with new clientele.
DVAA's annual Riverfest Poster Auction helps draw attention to our artisan vendors with its audience of discerning collectors and arts patrons.
ELIGIBILITY This is a juried street fair open to artists, artisans, makers, and craftspeople. All work must be original in design and produced by the exhibiting artist.
