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.
SCF is considered a smoke-free event. We ask that smoking be done beyond the festival perimeter.
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 only accept tickets.
1 ticket = 1 drink
- Beer, cider, cocktails = $8.00

If you would prefer to try a range of beer and cider rather than a full pour, we are offering the BREW EXPERIENCE again this year. Tickets available soon!
ABOUT ART FÜD

ABOUT SILK CITY FEST
When: August 26, 2023, from 1–9:30 PM
Where: Purnell Place, Manchester, CT
This is the sixth 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.
Key Bank: closest to and visible from fest; at kiosk right along Purnell Place
Bank of America: next door to Work_Space on its south side
Webster Bank: corner of Main and Maple
Santander: corner of Main and Gorman; also inside CVS at Main and Charter Oak
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.
