Arts Fest Named a Top 10 Summer Festival

Summer break may have just started yesterday, but it’s never too early to think about coming back for the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts.

Just recently, Arts Fest was named on livability.com’s top 10 list of Summer Festivals, coming in at a respectable No. 5.

According to the site:

“More than 100,000 people attend this five-day celebration of artwork, music and culture, which features more than 300 of the nation’s best artists. Nearly 1,000 artists vie for a spot in the festival’s sidewalk art sale and exhibition, according to festival organizers, who set aside booth space on the Penn State University Park campus for regional artists.”

Mark your calendars — Arts Fest 2013 is set for July 11-14 this year and it’s always a great time to reunite with college friends and get your State College fix before classes start back up in August.
