Mayfair Festival of the Arts is one of the Lehigh Valley's biggest annual events. The festival offers a juried Artist Market, a Cullinary Garden, a children's section, art classes, arts-in-action and five stages for performing arts. Held for five days over the Memorial Day weekend, attendance for the event typically exceeds 50,000. This year we are expanding the artist market by creating a premier "Artist Esplanade" near one of the main entrances where artists can expect increased impact for their booth. We are also increasing the number of artists and heavily marketing the arts aspect of the festival. Allentown is the 3rd largest city in Pennsylvania. It lies within Lehigh County, the fastest-growing county in the state. Residents are a mix of locals and commuters to Philadelphia, northern NJ and New York City. In 2012 the festival will celebrate its 26th year. Please join us for this wonderful event!
