Arts Fest To Host Limited Live Music Starting July 8

Although this year’s overall festival remains largely canceled, the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts will host a limited series of live music events next week.

From Thursday, July 8, through Saturday, July 10, Arts Fest will present 11 musical performances at State College Presbyterian Church at 132 W. Beaver Ave. The festival’s “famous” Sidewalk Sale and Exhibition will still take place virtually.

“We’re excited to have performers in front of live audiences once again,” festival director Rick Bryant said. “We’re not quite back at business as usual, but this is a step in the right direction.”

Wristbands for admission will be available at the door all weekend long. They’re good for the entire three-day festival and can be purchased for $10 each.

The festival will limit each audience to 250 people, and seating is up for grabs on a first-come, first-serve basis. Most importantly, having a wristband will not guarantee you a seat.

Each performance will be streamed on Arts Fest’s Facebook and YouTube pages for those who can’t attend in person.

Here’s a full list of the lineup. All performances are at State College Presbyterian Church, except where noted:
