Art Stroll

Kennett Square’s Art Stroll is a monthly celebration of the local art scene as it is showcased in the galleries, shops and restaurants throughout town.  Residents and visitors alike are encouraged to come into town to enjoy our festive main street, the strolling music of duo Sin City Light and browse the many businesses that stay open late.  The Art Stroll runs from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the first Friday of each month.

AFTER 5 p.m. on Friday, enjoy free parking anywhere in the PARKING GARAGE and at any street meter.

For more information about the art scene in Kennett Square check out the KennettArts facebook page.


MARCHÉ is thrilled to be hosting Gordon and Carol Carlisle for December’s first Friday. These locals offer a quirky and whimsical expression of the beautiful human form. Their art is compulsive, celebratory, and a way of life.
