Overview

Artistry runs deep in Roxborough, and there’s no better stage for seeing it than at our annual Art is Life festival. Three main stages. Dozens of pop-up shops. Vendor tables lining the main artery of our neighborhood. This is a place for creative energy, fine craftsmanship, craft news, locally-sourced cuisine, and art of just about every kind.  

If you are interested in participating in Art Is Life as an artist/crafter or sponsor please contact us at marketing@roxboroughpa.com
