Children and Youth Sidewalk Sale Application Available
The Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts has issued the Call for Entries for its Children and Youth Sidewalk Sale, a signature event of the Children’s Day Activities of the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts.
The 2023 Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts will be from July 12 through July 16 on the streets of State College and on the adjacent campus of Penn State University. The Children and Youth Sidewalk Sale will be held on South Allen Street, on Children and Youth Day, Wednesday, July 12 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The Children and Youth Sidewalk Sale is a fun way for children to sell original artwork that they have made and perhaps earn some money in the process.
Children from ages 8 to 18 who live in, or who have relatives in Centre, Blair, Clearfield, Clinton, Huntingdon, Mifflin or Union are eligible to participate in the Children’s Sidewalk Sale. The Children and Youth Sidewalk Sale is subject to very simple rules. For example, each artist must make his or her own work. Items made from kits are not permitted.
The application postmark deadline is June 23, 2023. Applications postmarked after that date will not be considered. Applications may be delivered to the Arts Festival offices at 403 South Allen Street, Suite 205A, State College until 5:00 PM on Friday, June 23, 2023. There is a $25.00 entry fee.
