We Want To Hear Your Craziest Arts Fest Stories

Ah, Arts Fest.

Allen Street is dressed to the nines, campus is filled with families, and some sophomore is passed out in Jimmy John’s at 2 p.m.

While the festival is a great opportunity to listen to live music, check out some art exhibitions, and munch on local eats, it’s also an excuse to escape to Happy Valley for the weekend after spending the past 10 weeks rotting away in your childhood bedroom with your parents breathing down your neck.

Let’s just say that it’s not uncommon for students to get into some hijinks during this State College tradition.

Whether you woke up on Old Main Lawn this morning or fought some summer session kids 30 years ago, we want to hear your best Arts Fest stories. Fill out the form below for a chance to be featured on our site!
