— Kick off the summer season at the Stroudsburg Arts Festival, a celebration of fine art, fine crafts and music.

The Pocono Arts Council will host the festival from 2-7 p.m. on Saturday, July 7, at 7th Street and Courthouse Square, rain-or-shine.

This fun downtown arts festival has been reworked to replace the former “Art on Main” event that took place in May each year. Beginning at 2 p.m., visit 30 fine artists and fine craftsmen at their booths, where patrons can purchase handcrafted and original art in a variety of mediums.

This is a great opportunity to speak with the artists in person and get an inside perspective on an artist’s work. Artists will showcase their talents with live demonstrations in glass-blowing, oil painting, and acrylics painting, to name a few. Artistic mediums include acrylic, acrylic fluid pour, airbrush, beekeeping, clay/ceramics, glass, jewelry, mixed media, oil painting, painting on rocks, pen and ink, photography, sculpture, and woodworking.

2 to 7 p.m. — Live music and entertainment by local musicians and other performers on a center stage in Courthouse Square.

4 to 6 p.m. — The Pocono Arts Council will host an artists’ reception and awards ceremony for the Waterscapes Exhibition on display in the ARTSPACE Gallery from July 6 to 28.

6 to 8 p.m. — Origins Gallery at PoconoArts will host the Peep Show Exhibition with musician Doug Keatz performing live, 6:30-7:30 p.m.

6 to 8 p.m. — First Saturday ArtWalk happening at eight art galleries in downtown Stroudsburg, each open with exhibitions or special events.

After the Stroudsburg Arts Festival concludes at 7 p.m., patrons are encouraged to dine at one of the area restaurants.

The Pocono Arts Council is a local arts service organization serving Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike and Wayne counties. The mission of the council is to build the community artistically and culturally by providing leadership, service and education: “Culture Builds Community.” For further information, visit poconoarts.org, email info@poconoarts.org, or call 570-476-4460.
