Coming up August 6th: ArtFest

This year, Bloomsburg’s annual ArtFest has a new organizer, the Exchange, collaborating with long-time producer Downtown Bloomsburg, Inc. Dedicated to bringing the arts to all communities throughout our region, the Exchange (then the Moose Exchange) used to host the wintertime ArtWalk-In; as Downtown Bloomsburg Inc. reorients its priorities around a strategic plan for Main Street, the Exchange has stepped in to make ArtFest an even more successful event.

The ninth annual ArtFest will take place on Saturday, the 6th of August, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in its traditional location on Center Street between Main and Thirds Streets. With good attendance in all prior years, we look forward to a repeat showing this summer.

As always, ArtFest will showcase regional artists’ original work on this one day, accompanied by live music and activities for the whole family. A summertime art party, ArtFest draws families from well beyond Bloomsburg, and both art and food vendors have done well here year after year.

Stick around after the event, have supper downtown, and enjoy music by Gabe Stillman and the Billtown Giants at 7 p.m. in Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble’s Alvina Krause Theatre, brought to you by the Exchange’s Destination Blues Music Festival!

Please get in touch with Oren B. Helbok at or

Looking forward to seeing you in Bloomsburg in August!
