Picturesque New Hope, PA, an hour's drive from Philadelphia, grew up as a mill town on the Delaware River and its artists and artisans, galleries and craft shops have made it an arts and shopping hub for the past century.


It's great weather this weekend for the 20th annual New Hope Outdoor Juried Arts & Crafts Festival today and tomorrow.

Over 200 mainly local artists are showing their paintings, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics, wearable art, photography, glass art and much more. The exhibitors include the singer and painter Annie Haslam of the band Renaissance. A full list of exhibitors is here.

There are two days of music on the Festival Stage kick off at noon with kid-friendly music each day. Performers include 17-year-old singer songwriter Lily Mae, chosen by Helen Leicht as a Philly Local PIck of the Day and featured on Gene Shay's Folk Show on XPN. The schedule is here.
