People's Choice Festival: Rundown of Daily Entertainment

by on July 09, 2012 6:00 AM

Celebrating 20 years of showcasing some of the best local art, food and entertainment in Pennsylvania, the People's Choice Festival runs Thursday through Sunday in Boalsburg. 

There is something to see, do eat or hear and fun is in store for the whole family.

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the festival is open from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m. On Sunday, it runs from noon to 5 p.m. 

The People's Choice Festival is held on the ground of the Pennsylvania Military Museum, off of Route 322. There is on-site parking. 

As an added bonus to commemorate 20 years of the People's Choice Festival, there will be an added "inner arch" of artisans, which allows for at least 12-15 more local artisans to participate. "Artists in Action" will be back as well. Artisans include those who work with clay, glass, leather, clay and metal, as well as jewelry designers. 

When it's time to get your grub on, be sure to stop by the food tent to sample everything from specialty sandwiches and ice cream, crepes and waffles to pulled pork and fried Oreos and even produce.
