Saucon Creek Arts Festival

The Saucon Creek Arts Festival, at this time, is still scheduled for June 6, 2020. It is our hope that by early June, the COVID-19 Virus will be suppressed and it will be safe for all to enjoy the outdoor festival and be in community once more. Meanwhile, we will extend the deadline for Saucon Creek Arts Festival applications into May (unless we reach capacity sooner), and a new deadline will be posted on or about April 5th. If we have to cancel the festival due to COVID-19, your jury fee and booth fee will be returned to you. The health of our community is of utmost importance to the SVC, and we are monitoring the situation closely. Please check back to this site for updates. We wish everyone good physical and emotional health during this difficult and unprecedented time.
