Lehigh Valley Arts Directory

Let the Arts Unite us

The Lehigh Valley and its people have rich heritages with tremendous cultural resources. While multiple counties, cities and municipalities comprise the region, the Lehigh Valley Arts Council believes that there is ONE arts community. By working together, we can learn from each other and attract a broader audience regionally.

Cultural Organizations


The area’s arts and culture calendar features a profusion of music and culture festivals, drawing talented musicians and artisans from around the country and around the world. With entertainment for all ages, unique crafts, and tempting cuisine, area festivals make ample use of the Lehigh Valley’s beautiful park systems, attracting millions of locals and out-of-town guests.

Arts Practitioners

“Artists and their work remind us of the importance of beauty, and enrich our cultural and emotional lives. They introduce our children to the great stories, to the great truths. Artists are our eyes and ears and our conscience.

To the artists who are listed: thank you for enriching our lives and our community. To those who patronize and support the arts: thank you for giving them – and us – the opportunity.”Randall Forte, Founding Executive Director
