The 25th Annual New Hope Arts & Crafts Festival is coming to town on the weekend of Sept. 29-30.

Featuring more than 160 artists and craftspeople, the event is being held at New Hope-Solebury High School.

In addition to the artists’ market, the festival includes family-focused events, including a children’s art tent, a food court and music. There’s also a free raffle in which 25 winners will receive a pair of tickets to Bucks County Playhouse, and a “Weekend in New Hope” grand prize will be awarded.

Artists and craftspeople at the festival include specialists in oil painting, pastels, watercolors, drawing, etching, mixed media, black and white and color photography, soft and hard sculpture, wood turning and rustic furniture, pottery and glassware, wearable art, leather and fabric handbags, hand spun and felted clothing, and jewelry. Prizes are awarded in six different categories: crafts, fine arts, fiber, jewelry, mixed media and photography.

The event is sponsored by Penn Community Bank and Bucks County Playhouse, and proceeds benefit New Hope Visitor’s Center.
