Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts

July 12 - July 15


The Central Pennsylvania Festival of Arts, better known as Arts Fest, is a favorite annual event every July. It features the nationally-ranked Sidewalk Sale & Exhibition featuring over 300 of the nation’s best artists and craftsmen in addition to performing arts presented at six outdoor and indoor stages.
Each day of the Arts Fest features musical performances by artists from Pennsylvania and around the country.

Don’t miss Wednesday’s Youth Day, which includes a special sidewalk sale featuring art by young artists of Central Pennyslvania counties, the Grand Procession and a traditional Sing Along at the State College Presbyterian Church. The kids will also enjoy the lengendary buckets of water and mister on the 100 block of South Allen Street to keep everyone cool in the middle of the summer. Request A Central PA Visitors Guide

Enjoy the Italian Street Painting Festival on the 100 block of Hiester Street to see works of art at the tips of your toes. Also watch a mound of sand turn into a beautiful sculpted work of art as the weekend passes along.
