ABOUT US

The Blair County Arts Festival heralds the arrival of spring!

pond

Every spring, for the past 52 years, about 10,000 people gather on the campus of Penn State Altoona for this time-honored festival. They gather to perform, create, dine, listen to music, watch performing artists, browse through art exhibits, and shop for unique, hand-crafted treasures. Their souls are nourished by the sights, sounds, aromas, tastes, and textures provided by the Arts Festival. The beautiful, park-like campus of Penn State Altoona provides the picturesque background for all of these enriching experiences.  The Blair County Arts Festival is presented by the Blair County Arts Foundation.

The Blair County Arts Festival is sponsored in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. BCAF is proud to be a member of Explore Altoona.
