The fourteenth ArtFest will take place on Saturday, August 20th, between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. surrounding the fountain on the Square and up Market Street in downtown Bloomsburg, with more than fifty art and craft vendors and fine food vendors, with live music by local performers all day and fun activities for people of all ages.

If you would like to exhibit at the event, with art, craft, food, and/or activities, visit ExchangeArts.org/artfest-exhibitors.

For the complete line-up of vendors, non-profit partners, and music, check back in June at ExchangeArts.org/artfest.

The event provides a lively, comfortable atmosphere for the general public to see art, meet and talk with artists about their studio practices, and purchase fine artworks. Attendance has grown by 100% since the move to the Square in 2017; in 2021, approximately 3000 people attended.

Downtown Bloomsburg has plenty of parking; you need to feed the meters 10-5 on Saturday, and in addition to coins you can now also pay through the PANGO app; to sign up, go to mypango.com.

ArtFest is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

Downtown Blooomsburg, Inc. (DBI), the non-profit organization devoted to the betterment of Bloomsburg's downtown commercial district, founded ArtFest in 2009; The Exchange, a non-profit dedicated to bringing the arts to all communities throughout our region, has produced the event since 2016; and the Town of Bloomsburg has provided the venue and support services each year. Both DBI and The Exchange look forward to other events -- both in-person and on-line -- that our fellow citizens can enjoy safely; for more information, please visit DowntownBloomsburg.org and elsewhere here at ExchangeArts.org.
