Enjoy a day with the family and view locally crafted artisan works surrounded by nature’s beautiful work at Art on the Allegheny in Tionesta.
This is the third year that the Forest Area Arts Council is sponsoring Art on the Allegheny. The event is scheduled for Saturday August 31, from 10am to 5pm. This is a free event for all ages with artists selling their art, live demonstrating, and free hands-on art opportunities. An Art Activities tent will offer art projects specifically for children to experience creating their own works of art.
Art on the Allegheny is a nature art festival taking place along the banks of beautiful Allegheny River in Forest County. Artists and artisans who create nature-inspired art and wish to sell their work and demonstrate or teach mini art experience workshops are encouraged to participate. Food vendors may also participate. Registration forms to participate are available.
Music will be performed throughout the day, so bring your lawn chair. Food will be available throughout the day.
10 am – 11:30 am: Scott & Kathy Pearson
Noon – 1:30 pm: Border Ride
2 pm – 3:30 pm: Fieldstone
4 pm – 5 pm: Making Changes
Free off-street parking will be available on-site. Turn west (toward the river) from Rt. 36/Elm Street onto Sherman Street (formerly Highland St.) at the Mid-Town Motel and follow the signs. Or, park downtown or on the Church/Walnut Street lot behind the Tionesta Fire Department Social Hall and walk the short distance to the ball field.
