Youngstown State University is proud to present the 21st Annual Summer Festival of the Arts as a robust celebration of the performing and visual arts, prominently including a juried art show. Featuring the works of local, regional and national artists, this event welcomes over 80 artists yearly. Music, dance and theatrical performances throughout the festival grounds complement the art and attract a diverse and fun crowd.
The Summer Festival of the Arts is the flagship event for the Summer Festival of the Arts Weekend, which includes the Youngstown Wine and Jazz Festival featuring Norman Brown, and St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Summerfest. Other activities designed to enhance the Summer Festival of the Arts include the Festival of Nations, where ethnic groups display artifacts and sell food; an extensive children’s hands-on art tent; a silent auction and numerous displays and activities sponsored by community arts and cultural groups.
Held outdoors, on the park-like, urban campus of Youngstown State University. Free parking can be found at any YSU parking deck or surface lot within easy walking distance of the Festival.
