The Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts is an art lover’s dream of 300 artists. Whether shopping for a unique gift, or something for yourself, the Sidewalk Sale and Exhibition is the place to be. The Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts was founded in 1966 by The Pennsylvania State University’s College of Arts and Architecture and the State College Chamber of Commerce as a way to celebrate the arts and stimulate the local economy. Today the event draws over 125,000 people to State College each summer. The Festival take's place during the Penn State Alumni Association's "Arts Festival Alumni Weekend" a family-friendly program that brings Penn Staters back to "Happy Valley" to enjoy the sights and sounds of the "Arts Fest"--a quintessential part of the Penn State expereince. Click here for more information.

The Ann Arbor Street Art Fair (AASAF) is the original of a collective of four concurrent and contiguous fairs that transform central Ann Arbor into a massive outdoor art gallery each July. Established in 1960 as part of Ann Arbor’s Summer Sidewalk Sales, the Street Art Fair quickly became a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization with a mission of increasing public knowledge and appreciation for contemporary fine arts and fine crafts. Over the ensuing 58 years, and additional art fairs, the Original Fair has continued to focus on the art, the artists and the art buyers. Known for its consistently high quality, all original work, the Street Art Fair resides on the streets surrounding the historic Burton Carillon Tower and the tree-lined central campus of the University of Michigan and does not host sidewalk sales or vendor booths. The Street Art Fair was voted one of the “Top Ten Best Art Festivals” in the country in an USA TODAY Reader’s Poll and is continually in the Art Fair Calendar “Top Ten Best Art Fairs” & Art Fair Source Books “Elite 25”. In addition, it is ranked 4th in the nation in Sunshine Artist’s “Top 100 Fine Art Shows” in 2016Click here for more information.
