Blair County Arts Festival

Picture it. Friends and families gathering to browse through fine art exhibits – listen to their favorite bands – admire the artwork of area students and the impressive sounds of student musicians and singers – experience art projects with their children – purchase handmade crafts and scrumptious food from festival vendors. Picture the hustle and bustle of this community celebration. Now picture it in a peaceful, parklike setting. You have just pictured the Blair County Arts Festival at Penn State Altoona! It’s an experience enjoyed by thousands for the past 51 years.
