A Peek at the 2009 Arts Festival

More than 125,000 annually attend the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, a nationally recognized celebration of the visual and performing arts that winds through Penn State’s University Park campus and downtown State College.

These Arts Fest visitors contribute millions to the State College economy, while supporting hundreds of artisans and craftspeople. A majority of festival–goers are Penn State alums, reconnecting with their alma mater and friends during Arts Fest Alumni Weekend, sponsored by the Penn State Alumni Association. Throughout the weekend, alumni and their families enjoy a sidewalk art sale that stretches from campus to downtown State College, sand sculpting, Italian street painting, children and youth day activities, arts-and-crafts workshops, silent auctions, great food, and dozens of live music and theatrical performances.

Here are some scenes from the 2009 Arts Festival:
