As 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 pocketbook.

The 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.

We use the Zapplication jury process:
