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.
Roxborough Pocket Park Opening
The Roxborough Pocket Park, a public flex-space in the heart of Roxborough, will open with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in conjunction with Art Is Life on Saturday, April 21, 2018 at 12:30 p.m. The Roxborough Pocket Park opening also includes the dedication of Watershed, a mural by internationally recognized artist and Roxborough native Paul Santoleri, produced in partnership with Mural Arts Philadelphia.
