After a two year absence because of the COVID pandemic, the Delaware Arts Festival is back to tempt the eyes, mouth, and ears this weekend.

The Festival provides two days of art, fun, food, and entertainment for the whole family. Once again, a sea of white tents will line both sides of Sandusky and West Winter Streets with artists exhibiting their creative work including jewelry, leather creations, tie dyed art, pottery, paintings, photography and much more.

Food trucks and musical entertainment are scheduled for South Sandusky Street. Trucks this year include Dan’s Deli, Schmidt’s Hospitality Concepts, Sweet Treats, Riddle’s Ribs, Cate’s Steakhouse Catering, Kent’s Kones, and G and G Concessions.

As in years past, the not-for-profit festival is awarding $20,000 to three county wide senior high school art students to further their visual arts studies.

Entertainment includes the following:

Saturday Schedule

  • Capital City Pipes & Drums
  • Gaetanos Jazz Trio
  • The Amazing Giants
  • Imber Solis
  • Mark Sparrow

Sunday Schedule

  • The Calliope King
  • Steamtown Road
  • Funky Waters
  • Lucky Penny Sisters
  • Magic Nate

The Delaware Arts Festival takes from 11 AM to 7 PM on Saturday, and 10 AM to 5 PM on Sunday. Arts Festival street closings will begin at 5 AM Saturday. Streets will be cleared and re-open by 7 PM Sunday. Closed will be Sandusky Street, from William Street to Central Avenue, and from William to Spring Street; and Winter Street, from Franklin Street to the East Winter Street exit from the city parking lot.
