Autumn Alive 2012 Highlights

Arts Alive 2015

Regardless of the cold weather, Quakertown Alive! is busy planning our 15th annual Arts Alive! juried art show and fest.

Resized Postcard 700 Broad Street in downtown Quakertown will be transformed into a festival of artists, crafters, jewelers, musicians, food vendors, activities, and so much more. This free, annual festival, now in its 15th year, features over 100 juried exhibitors and has something for everyone of every age. 

True treasures and unique finds can be found up and down East and West Broad Street, which will be dotted with unique food vendors, artists and crafters, and fun and informational booths. All the local merchants open their doors and invite you to browse their offerings, event specials, and extra goodies.

We are now accepting applications from artists and crafters who would like to be entered into our juried craft show. You can download the rules and application here.
