The 2020 Virtual Sidewalk Sale will take place Thursday, July 9 – Sunday, July 12.
The show must go on! Consistently ranked as one of the top outdoor fine art and fine craft shows in the nation, the 54th Annual Sidewalk Sale and Exhibition will be transformed into a Virtual Art Fair. Since you can’t come to us, we’re bringing artists and craftspeople from across the nation to your computer, tablet, or smartphone – wherever you are. More than one hundred and fifty juried artists and craftsmen (learn about our jury process here) offer a wide variety of art and fine craft for sale including ceramics, jewelry, home accessories, furniture, painting, photography, sculpture and wearable art. There is something to suit everyone’s taste and pocketbook.
Many exhibitors are offering special discounts for sales made during our virtual event from July 9 through July 12. Your purchases support entrepreneurs whose main outlets for sales—art fairs and festivals—have disappeared due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The success of this year’s event will also help the Festival (a non-profit arts organization) return to downtown State College and the Penn State campus in 2021.
Special thanks to the Sy Barash Bright Ideas Fund for supporting the 2020 Virtual Sidewalk Sale .
