The Banner Exhibition and Competition is one of the signature events of the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts. The Festival is proud to display past and present banners annually. Our banners hang over the Festival route, adding color and movement to the festive atmosphere. Both individuals and groups may submit entries. Prizes are awarded for the best banners in three categories: Professional, General and Youth.
While the 2020 Festival has been canceled, the Banner Exhibition and Competition will still take place. We will display banners in non-traditional locations in Centre County and host an online banner exhibition. We will hang our 2020 banners over the Festival route in 2021.
The application deadline is June 19, 2020.
The Banner Exhibition is sponsored by FirstEnergy Foundation.
