Spring Rittenhouse Craft Show is a Free three-day event;  5/12 (11 A.M. to 7 P.M.) 5/13 (11 A.M. to 7 P.M.) and 5/14 (11 A.M. to 5 P.M.)

Through a partnership with Friends of Rittenhouse Square and in conjunction with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, this event, which brings artists from around the country to downtown Philadelphia annually, was named a Top 100 Fine Craft Fair in the nation by ArtFair Sourcebook.

The event features functional home décor such as furniture, pottery, glass, photography and other furnishings and also showcases wearable arts such as jewelry, clothing, accessories, leather and fiber handbags. Regardless of medium, all Guild craftsmen make it their passion to elevate everyday functional items into the realm of the visionary. All the craft on display is the patient and careful work of the craftsmen in the booth.

Rittenhouse Square is one of five original squares planned by city founder William Penn in the late 17th century, Rittenhouse Square sits in the middle of some of the most desirable addresses in Philadelphia. High-rise residences, luxury apartments, an office tower, popular restaurants and retail stores surround the tree-filled park, which offers an oasis of respite and relaxation amidst the bustling city. Named for astronomer and clockmaker David Rittenhouse, Rittenhouse Square is where visitors and locals gather for picnics, brown-bag lunches or just strolling amid the trees, manicured lawns and sculptures. The family-friendly park is one of the most lovely and peaceful spots in which to paint, read, relax on a park bench or catch-up with friends.

The stop is only 3 blocks away from the park. Or perhaps you’d like to take Amtrak to 30th Street Station and take a $6 taxi ride to Rittenhouse Square.  There is lots of parking in the area but it can be expensive, check out parking locations on Google.
