The Arts Festival is an opportunity for Cathy to meet friends and catch up with some of her favorite artists.
July in State College means "Arts Fest", the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, supported by the community and Penn State since 1967.
Over 125,000 visitors join the celebration of the arts which includes a juried Sidewalk Sale and Exhibition. In addition, music, dance, sand sculptures, theater, food and much more make State College a fun destination.
For many visitors, this is an annual event, a time to reconnect with family, friends and community.

Jerry Jackson, a resident of State College, is a neighbor of mine in East College Heights. He has been a successful artist for many years and his booth can always be found at the same place on South Allen Street at the Arts Festival.
Caroline Koons, a friend from my college days, lives in Missouri and has been making pottery since 1971. We reconnected a number of years ago when she recognized me at the Arts Festival. I visit her booth every year.
Mary Jackson is an artist who weaves sweetgrass baskets using traditional South Carolina Lowcountry techniques. Her coiled gullah baskets include traditional as well as original contemporary designs.
She has been awarded a MacArthur Foundation Grant, commonly called the "genius grant", for her work in 2008. She has been an invited guest artist for a number of years and received the Robert and Virginia Mountz award in 2011.
