ArtFest returns to its great location, surrounding the fountain on Bloomsburg’s Square!
Dedicated to bringing the arts to all communities throughout our region, The Exchange again presents Columbia County’s biggest one-day outdoor art event of the year.
The twelth annual ArtFest will take place on Saturday, the 24th of August, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in downtown Bloomsburg. Directly across the Square, surrounding the Civil War monument, the Farmers Market will open at 8 a.m. and stay open into the afternoon.
ArtFest showcases more than 35 regional artists’ original work, accompanied by live music, local food, and activities for the whole family. A summertime art party, ArtFest draws attendees from throughout our region, and it draws artists from near and far as well. Exhibitors include painters, photographers, potters, jewelers, sculptors, glass artists, fabric artists, woodworkers, bonsai growers and more.
For the complete line-up of vendors, both craft and food, as well as musicians, visit ExchangeArts.org/artfest throughout the year.
Activities for families at the event will include The Exchange’s Art Cart, using simple materials – many of them recycled – to help bring out the beauty inside every person. We’ll have information on all of the art, craft, and food vendors, as well as the musicians, as the date draws nigh.
Right across the Square, don’t forget to check out the Bloomsburg Farmers Market.
The Exchange thanks the Columbia-Montour Visitors Bureauand Downtown Bloomsburg, Inc., for their sponsorship of ArtFest; the event also receives support from 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.
