43rd Annual Lewisburg Arts Festival
April in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, means it's time for the 43rd annual Lewisburg Arts Festival. This year's festival again runs for two weeks, beginning April 27 and continuing through May 12. The two weeks are filled with something special for people of all ages.
The highlight of the two-week festival is the Market Street Arts Show held on Saturday, April 28. The Market Street Show includes over 100 juried artists in all mediums, displaying their works throughout historic, downtown Lewisburg. The town will be filled with performing artists as well. On every corner and in between will be musical acts, dancers and more. Of course what would a fun festival be without great food? Saturday will be no exception, with food for every taste from one end of town to the other. Soldiers' Park will be transformed into the Interactive Arts Park and host to new hands-on activities, especially designed for children, including a petting zoo. Shuttle bus transportation will be available all day from the old Wal-Mart parking lot to downtown.
The festivities actually begin Friday evening, April 27 with three exhibits. The Indoor Art Exhibit, a juried show for adult artists and the Scholastic Arts Exhibit, with artists from over 20 high schools, will be held at the Packwood House Museum, 15 N. Water St. The Photography Exhibit, a juried show of amateur photographers, will take place at the Lewisburg Studio, 425 Market St.
The Arts Festival only begins with the Market Show Arts Festival. It continues for two weeks with four, varied arts workshops, and Lewisburg Live!, live bands in venues throughout downtown Lewisburg on Saturday, May 12.

Side Show is a Tony-nominated musical, which played on Broadway in 1998 and has had a loyal cult following ever since. It tells the story of real life Daisy and Violet Hilton, conjoined twins who overcame a lifetime of pain to go on to become one of the most successful acts in all of Vaudeville history. Along the way, they learn about life, love and how in the end it all comes down to who’s by your side.
