Festivals & Fairs
April in Lewisburg, means it's time for the 44th annual Lewisburg Celebration of the Arts. This year's celebration again runs for two weeks, beginning April 26 and continuing through May 11. The two weeks are filled with something special for people of all ages.
The highlight of the two-week celebration is the Lewisburg Arts Festival held on Saturday, April 27. The Arts Festival includes over 100 juried artists in all mediums, displaying their works throughout historic, downtown Lewisburg. The town will be filled with performing artists as well. On every corner and in between will be musical acts, dancers and more. Of course what would a fun festival be without great food? Saturday will be no exception, with food for every taste from one end of town to the other. Soldiers' Park will be transformed into the Interactive Arts Park and host to new hands-on activities, especially designed for children, including a petting zoo. Shuttle bus transportation will be available all day from the old Wal-Mart parking lot to downtown.
The Lewisburg Celebration of the Arts begins Friday evening, April 26 with three exhibits. The Indoor Art Exhibit, a juried show for adult artists and the Scholastic Arts Exhibit, with artists from over 20 high schools, will be held at the Packwood House Museum, 15 N. Water St. The Photography Exhibit, a juried show of amateur photographers, will take place at the Lewisburg Studio, 425 Market St.
The Lewisburg Celebration of the Arts continues for two weeks with varied arts workshops, and Lewisburg Live!, live bands in venues throughout downtown Lewisburg on Saturday, May 11.
The Lewisburg Arts Festival is sponsored by the Lewisburg Arts Council.
