State College Borough Announces Parking Changes For Arts Fest

It’s that time of the summer, folks.

State College will host visitors from far and wide this weekend for its annual Arts Fest. The festival will run from Wednesday, July 10, to Sunday, July 14.

Due to the expected increase of people in town, the borough announced changes to parking around the area. Festival parking is available within the borough and bus service to the exhibits will be provided by the Blue Loop.

Visitors are encouraged to use the downtown parking garages of Beaver, Fraser, and Pugh with event rates in place from 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 10, to 6 p.m. Sunday, July 14.

The borough will not enforce the usual one and two-hour parking restrictions and will also allow parking from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. Enforcement of the restrictions will end at 2 a.m. on Wednesday and resume at 6 a.m. on Sunday.

On-street parking meters will be enforced from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m.

Pennsylvania Vehicle Code Violations will also be enforced throughout the weekend, as well as all other non-PA Vehicle Code Violations. Any car that does not meet the vehicle codes is subject to ticketing and towing.

According to the borough, parking violations will be strictly enforced, including no parking on the sidewalk, parking within an intersection, no parking on a crosswalk, no parking within 20 feet of a crosswalk at an intersection, no parking within 30 feet of a stop sign, no parking over 12 inches from the curb, no parking against traffic, and no parking in front of driveway.
