Who do you want to see and hear?

Performances are a highlight of the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts this year they have nearly 80 options for you to enjoy.

This summer, they are offering a traditional mix of old favorites and new performers on both outdoor and indoor stages. In addition to the Festival Shell on the Old Main lawn, they will have performers on the Allen Street Stage and on the Sidney Friedman Park Stage, plus some smaller acts on outdoor plazas.

If you prefer the comfort of an indoor show, you won’t want to miss some terrific performances at The State Theatre and the State College Presbyterian Church. Admission for most indoor shows will be by a Festival wristband, available at the door or at select locations in the Centre Region.
