Lancaster begins new summer event: Makersfest
A first of its kind event was held in Lancaster on Sunday; an arts festival where attendees could get creative themselves.
The First Annual Makersfest was held on the 300-block of North Queen Street.
Nearly 50 local artists were on hand with their works up for sale, including jewelry, pottery, clothing, paintings and more.
The block was shut down to traffic so folks could explore everything the artists had to offer.
“The city of Lancaster does not have a street art festival such as Harrisburg has the Artsfest and that sort of thing, so we feel that we’re bringing a new twist to the community, bringing an art festival to town,” says Nick Mohler with the PA Guild of Craftsmen.
Attendees could also try their hand at making a variety of different arts and crafts.
Things like silk screening, watercolor painting and shearing and knitting were all there for folks to try. Live music and a court full of food trucks were also on hand.
