the centerpiece of the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, the
Sidewalk Sale and Exhibition brings artists and craftspeople from across
the nation to State College to the streets of downtown State College
and the adjacent campus of The Pennsylvania State University. More than
three hundred exhibitors will offer a wide variety of objects for sale
including baskets, ceramics, jewelry, fiber, painting, photography, and
wearable art. There will be something to suit everyone's taste and
Sidewalk Sale and Exhibition is a juried outdoor show of high quality
fine art and fine craft. Our audience gains a better appreciation of the
artistic process through interaction with the exhibiting artists. It is
essential that the participating artist be the one who conceived the
design and executed the finished product. We are not interested in mass
produced products or sales agents hired to operate booths.
