Young at Art
Young at Art 2020 – Postponed
New Date: To BE DETERMINED
- Unfortunately, due to the threat of coronavirus, COVID-19, we have decided to postpone Young at Art. As information about the coronavirus continues to evolve, we have determined that a public event bringing out the whole family is too risky. It is always our intention to provide our participants with an outstanding experience while ensuring their safety, and at this time we need to play it safe. Once a revised date for the expo has been determined we will share that with our partners and the community.
Join us for the 5th annual Young at Art expo on Saturday, March 14th, 2020 from 10 am to 2 pm at Penn State Lehigh Valley for a FREE day of family fun!
- As an expo of creative learning, Young at Art is all about experiencing the arts first hand. Children of all ages can try out instruments, participate in interactive arts activities and experience performances by their peers in every artistic discipline.
- Parents, you will witness how the arts spark your child’s imagination and have the opportunity to gather valuable information about camps, classes, and other educational offerings by local cultural organizations.

- “From the point we entered the door, it was non-stop enjoyment for my family. My daughter truly enjoyed visiting each vendor and while doing so, I was quite impressed on how educational each station was. My daughter was able to learn new things, while having fun. Every parent’s dream!”

- “Everyone in attendance was ‘into’ the Arts and was either looking around or had a particular mission for the event. All that I spoke to were very excited to be there and could easily maneuver the exhibitor booths. The set up was also ideal as all exhibitors were easy to find.”
