Your Donation Brings the Festival to Life!

Although the traditional Arts Festival as we know and love it can’t happen this year, we are excited to bring the core of the Arts Festival experience to our community of friends and fans in the virtual world, wherever you may be. Art and music can powerfully connect people and offer creative outlets in this stressful and disconnected time.  Donating to the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts now will help us to deliver art-based experiences to people who need their spirits lifted and deliver an audience to our partner artists and makers—the epitome of small business entrepreneurs.  It will also position us to relaunch when we can safely gather and experience the joy of the Arts Festival together in State College once again. 

If you enjoy the annual Arts Festival, are looking forward to experiencing our virtual Arts Festival this year, and have the means to give, please make a donation to the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts. Thank you for your support!

Every July, new donors and volunteers join the long-time Arts Festival family to produce the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts. 

Your financial support brings the summer streets of State College and the Penn State Campus alive with incredible art, talented artists, fabulous musicians and entertainers, and delicious food. The magical transformation is now a grand tradition in State College, supported by a gracious community and donors like you.

Do you love the Arts Festival?  The music?  The tradition?  The art?  The fun?  Do you want to help make this year’s Festival an event to remember?
