2016 Celebration of the Arts

The Arts Festival, Saturday, April 23rd, 2016 – art, entertainment, and food all along Market Street

Lewisburg Live!, Saturday, May 7th, 2016 – 8-10 bands in venues throughout downtown

Returning again this year: Plein Air Painting, April 24th – Plein air painting at various Merrill Linn Conservancy sites.
