Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby and Arts Festival

Held every May along the cobblestoned Trenton Avenue, the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby and Arts Festival celebrates East Kensington’s local artists, musicians and restaurants. The day features more than 200 local arts and food vendors and the ever-popular Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby during which teams race their homemade, human-powered vehicles to the delight of the cheering crowd.
