LEWISBURG – Despite its two high-profile events being cancelled due to the pandemic, the Lewisburg Arts Council will still find a way to celebrate the arts this spring. The council is announcing a re-imagined ‘Celebration of the Arts’ for 2021 that will take place from Friday, April 23 through Saturday, May 8. That means, no downtown arts festival along Market Street.
The council says the festivities will include outdoor activities with demonstrations and workshops to encourage art-lovers to ‘view and do.’ There will also be virtual activities that will allow people to watch, listen, and create in the comfort and safety of home. The council says you can watch for more details as more events are finalized on its website, or on Facebook.

Lewisburg Arts Council announces Re-imagined Celebration of the Arts
The Lewisburg Arts Council is pleased to announce its re-imagined Celebration of the Arts for 2021! Although two high-profile events – the Lewisburg Arts Festival and Lewisburg Live! — will not take place due to coronavirus risk and planned construction in the borough of Lewisburg, we expect to offer plenty of arts opportunities to engage and inspire our community during the two-week 2021 Lewisburg Celebration of the Arts.
From Friday, April 23, through Saturday, May 8, outdoor activities including demonstrations and workshops will encourage art-lovers to view and do, while virtual activities will allow people to watch, listen, and create in the comfort and safety of their own homes.
The Arts Council welcomes suggestions and volunteers to help us transform how the arts are celebrated in the Susquehanna Valley! If you are interested in helping, please contact us at [email protected]
Please watch for details throughout the spring as more events are finalized. You can find us at www.lewisburgartscouncil.com, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/LewisburgArtsCouncil, or on Instagram at @lewisburgartscouncil.
The Lewisburg Arts Council is looking forward to a safe and fun Celebration this spring!
