State College offers a wide variety of entertainment options, from 18 bars and clubs in the downtown area to a number of music and performance venues, including the Bryce Jordan Center and The State Theatre. Happy Valley has hosted such performing greats as Jay-Z, Bruce Springsteen, Cirque du Soleil and Lewis Black. Student groups like SOMA and SPA also provide both national acts and student art and entertainment on campus and the community is home to an up-and-coming local music scene.
Alright, alright, alright! Kevin Hart is coming back to Happy Valley for another Bryce Jordan Center performance as Onward State has confirmed. The popular comedian will take the stage on Sunday, March 29 at 7:30 p.m.
