Mount Gretna, PA
Presented By: Pennsylvania Chautauqua
Deadline: April 1
Application Fee: $25 Booth Fee: $380
The show is held on the streets and in the wooded parks of Mount Gretna, a summer resort community.
Each year on the third weekend in August, the Pennsylvania Chautauqua, a non-profit organization, established in 1892 for the purpose of advancement and promotion of cultural activities, the arts and entertainment, sponsors an art show. As many as 18,000 festival-goers will plan on enjoying a weekend of art, crafts, entertainment and gourmet food, all "under the trees of old Chautauqua". The show includes an Emerging Artists' area, a Kid's Art Show, Theatre for Young Audiences, musicians and strolling performers.
In the summertime under the cool shade of the trees of Old Chautauqua, color and creativity explode. The quiet of the forest is broken with the sounds of music and laughter. The cottages are alive with conversation as friends and families celebrate the summer. Rocking, talking, sharing the treasures they have found at the Mount Gretna Outdoor Art Show.
