Mayfair Festival of the Arts is an annual tradition for people in eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey. As Allentown’s second largest annual festival, our audience of 25,000-45,000 people comes to Mayfair to view art, listen to music, and to EAT.
Mayfair Inc, a nonprofit organization, has been producing the Festival for 28 years, in order to celebrate and promote the arts. While other arts organizations specialize in one art form, we offer our community a sampling of every major art form in one causal and convenient place, at low to no-cost, and offer a full day arts field trip for schools at no charge.
Mayfair Festival of the Arts is held in the walkable west end of Allentown, an upscale area filled with boutiques, residences, a college, and a community theater. Our site, the Allentown Fairgrounds, is conveniently located and offers free onsite parking for thousands.
