Arts Calendar 

  • Although the arts are best experienced up close and personal, the spread of Covid-19 has required people to stay at a safe distance from others. Adapting to this new reality has many arts businesses expanding their digital foot print.
  • Now, we’ve assembled a new resource to highlight the virtual activities that our members are producing. Please page through the latest version of the Calendar Launch Pad on the right.

The Arts Calendar, the go-to resource for arts and culture events in the three county region, is produced by the Lehigh Valley Arts Council. Below on this page is a digital version of the calendar.
