For many, the one-day Arts Festival is all they know of Lewisburg’s annual two-week Celebration of the Arts. In 2021, we’re hoping to change that! Due to the coronavirus pandemic we will be holding our Arts Festival online again this year...with the addition of our Online Festival Shop (check back April 23rd to shop for some great items)! And because we want to give our community something to celebrate - we ARE holding the Celebration of the Arts!

From Friday, April 23, through Saturday, May 8,  2021, we are focusing on “home-grown” artists of all kinds. We're exploring safe, outdoor arts activities as well as virtual ones. Visit out Celebration of the Arts webpage for more information on workshopsevents, guided tours of "Modern Art Alley", plein air event, and entertainment throughout the community and online!
