The CPFA Silent Auction raises money to support Festival programs. The success of the auction is due to the generosity of exhibitors, the leadership of festival volunteers, and the shopping of hundreds of festival-goers.
The Silent Auction brings a prosaic wooden storage building to downtown State College and transforms it into a handsome gift gallery, like the transformation of the lowly maid Cinderella into the belle of the ball. The Silent Auction is located on the 100 block of South Allen Street.
The Silent Auction features a wide array of fine art and craft donated by Sidewalk Sale Artists. Many patrons use a visit to the Silent Auction as their jumping off point before heading out to check out the artists in the Sidewalk Sale and Exhibition. People see something they like in the Silent Auction and take note of whose work it is so that they are sure to stop at the artist’s booth.
The Silent Auction is sponsored by The Village at Penn State Retirement Community.
