A Great Bucks County Tradition, the Tinicum Arts Festival
has been canceled for 2021
The 2021 Tinicum Arts Festival, scheduled for the weekend of September 25 & 26, has been cancelled due to circumstances completely outside the control of its producer, the Tinicum Civic Association, or any of its volunteers. After months of hard work and planning by hundreds of volunteers to hold its 71st festival, the Association was suddenly informed in August that the historic barn and surrounding grounds in Tinicum Park would not be available on the dates confirmed early in the year by Bucks County Parks and Recreation. With planning starting a year in advance, and so little time to reconfigure and reschedule the many crafters, exhibitors, entertainers, food vendors and over 250 volunteers, it became clear that this year’s Arts Festival could not go forward. As its primary fund raiser, this comes as an additional blow to the Tinicum Civic Association’s efforts to offer support to nearly 40 other non-profit organizations , since it had to cancel last year due to Covid-19 restrictions. The Tinicum Civic Association, together with Bucks County Parks and Recreation, are now putting efforts into planning for next year’s festival to be held on July 9th & 10th, 2022.
