On-Demand Entertainment

Performances are a highlight of the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts and First Night State College. Although seeing a performance on a screen isn’t the same as being there in person, it’s becoming our new normal, as we all strive to keep certain traditions alive in these unprecedented times. 

In addition to live performances scheduled for July 8-10, we also have fun instructional videos, from how to make sticky buns to mixing craft cocktails, as well as museum visits, artist interviews and studio tours.

So grab a snack and a beverage, scroll down to check them out and enjoy!

December to Remember Festive Friday Performances

Thanks to the magic of YouTube, we’re delighted to share performances you might have missed during 2021’s December to Remember. These shows were live-streamed from the State College Presbyterian Church.

Other Performances

Once again, thanks to the magic of YouTube, we’re delighted to share some on-demand music from some of our favorite not-so-local performers.

How-To Videos

No matter if it’s mixing a cocktail, making something good to eat, or doing a little decorating project, we have you covered during December to Remember.


Museums across the world have created online experiences when they could not safely welcome crowds to their buildings.  Here’s an eclectic sample of thought provoking exhibitions.

Other Fun Stuff

Some things just don’t fit into any particular category.
