FEST REGULATIONS

ALCOHOL

Persons 21+ may purchase alcoholic beverages at SCF. Be prepared to show valid identification to obtain a wristband. You will not be served without a wristband. Those showing signs of intoxication will not be served. Outside alcohol is not permitted.

SMOKING

SCF should be considered a smoke-free event. We ask that smoking be done beyond the festival perimeter.

DOGS

We love dogs. Though we won’t ask your well-behaved canine friend to leave, we don’t think this festival is the best environment for her. Not every pooch is fond of crowds and live music, and the hot pavement is too harsh for unprotected paws.

BEER & COCKTAILS

PROCEDURES & COSTS

Drink tickets must be purchased at the designated booth. Beverage servers will accept tickets only.

1 ticket = 1 drink

  • Beer, cider, hard seltzer = $6.50
  • Cocktails = $7.50

If you would prefer to try a range of beer and cider rather than a full pour, we are offering the BREW EXPERIENCE for the first time this year. Click here for details.

GENERAL INFO

ABOUT ART FÜD

Art Füd is a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is “Art Building Community.” We are a small volunteer group of artists, art lovers, and compassionate souls. We started this organization because we care about people. Our goal is to organize art-related events for the benefit of artists and the community.

ABOUT SILK CITY FEST

When: August 27, 2022, from 1–10 PM
Where: Purnell Place, Manchester, CT

This is the fifth Silk City Fest since Art Füd became the organizer in 2017. Prior to that, the festival was a smaller evening event that was organized and run by a few hardworking individuals during the summer months. Art Füd decided to take this solid foundation of good ideas and put all our efforts into an annual event.

PARKING

Though the Purnell Place parking lot (Orange Lot) will be closed for this event, Manchester has no shortage of downtown parking. Please consult this page for parking options.
