The Fine Arts Fiesta

Thursday, May 16, 2019

The Fine Arts Fiesta, a celebration of diversity in the performing and visual arts, is the oldest festival of its kind in Pennsylvania. Founded in 1956 by Annette Evans and Alfred Groh as an annual celebration of the arts in the Wyoming Valley area, the first fiesta lasted three days and presented music, dance, drama, sketches and displays. Today the Fine Arts Fiesta spans four days and includes juried arts shows for students and adults, live performances by area school groups and professional acts, strolling performers, an artist market, and a selection of ethnic foods to please everyone's palate.
