Who Makes The Festival Happen? You Do!

The Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts offers many opportunities for community members to step right up and get involved.

We couldn’t produce this exceptional Arts Festival without the generous support of businesses, organizations, and individuals who have become part of the Festival family through sponsorships and philanthropic support.  The hardest part of producing the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts isn’t choosing the artists or booking the musicians, or even finding the hundreds of volunteers to make the event a success. The biggest challenge is paying for it all! 

But with so many people who love the Arts Festival, if we all chip in, we can do amazing things!  Can we count on you?

In addition to contributing your financial support, you can find lots of ways to volunteer your time and talents.  With just a few hours of service, you can help keep this nationally-acclaimed event the crown jewel of the State College summer.
