PA Arts Fest Exhibit

The exhibit, "Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts at 50: Making Lasting Memories," reflects on the history of the event popularly known as the Arts Festival, which brings more than 125,000 attendees to downtown State College and Penn State's University Park campus each July. The University Libraries’ Eberly Family Special Collections Library houses the CPFA archives of the top-ranked Arts Festival, which began in the summer of 1966 as a nonprofit, volunteer-run corporation that celebrates the arts.
