Arts: ONE World, OUR World
Celebrate the arts at the annual Fine Arts Fiesta! Held on Public Square in downtown Wilkes-Barre, the four-day event is a free-entry event showcasing work from more than 50 artists and live performances from area musicians.
The Fine Arts Fiesta, a celebration of diversity in the performing and visual arts, is 64-years young in 2019, making it the most established festival of its kind in the Commonwealth of 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. Over the years Fiesta has grown to four days, and continues to thrive as the longest-running free event offered in the City of Wilkes-Barre.
More than 60,000 people attend the event, with over 50 fine artists and crafters exhibited
A broad range of FREE, continuous performances appeals to everyone
