Fort Clifton Festival

Fort Clifton Festival 3

We are happy to announce that we will be holding a modified Fort Clifton Arts & Crafts Festival in 2021 on May 8 and May 9 from 10:30am-5:00pm both days. This past year has been tough on everyone and we’re as anxious as you are to get back to normal. To comply with current guidelines, our modified event will be different this year (see below). We hope you will consider visiting our 45th Annual Ft. Clifton Festival and are hopeful that current restrictions will continue to ease and we’ll make necessary adjustments.

Changes for the 2021 Festival

  • We are limiting arts and crafts exhibitors to the first 75 to register
  • Live entertainment, beer sales, and our kid’s amusement area will not be available
  • We will not offer shuttle services from White Bank Park
  • The total number of spectators for outdoor venues may not exceed 1,000 persons at any one time. Entry and exit points will be staffed to count attendees entering and exiting.
  • Masks are required for ages 5 and older when unable to maintain at least six feet of physical distance from other individuals who are not family members. Not required for certain exceptions (eating/drinking, health conditions, etc.).
  • Signage will be posted and hand sanitizer available. 

Admission and Parking

Admission and parking are free.
