Important Announcement

In consideration of the most recent developments regarding COVID-19, we regret to inform our vendors, participants, and guests that Artfest is cancelled for the 2020 season.  Our duty and vigilance to provide a safe environment for our visitors, staff, and volunteers, as well as our commitment to public safety in our community, mandates this decision.

Updates regarding Artfest 2021 will be posted on this site, as well as sent to directly to all of our registered vendors.  Vendors will receive information directly regarding refunds for space fees. Please note, the Historical Society will remain closed indefinitely to the public for all services and contact will be limited to email communication due to restricted operations during this time period.

We wish to thank our Artfest vendors, Historical Society members, and guests for their understanding and support – we will miss you!  We look forward to our next season with even more opportunities to celebrate art, music, and our community.

Best wishes to stay safe and healthy.

Saturday, May 9, 2020 will once again host Hershey's largest premier juried art show.  Hershey Artfest is held on the grounds of the Cocoa Beanery, next to the Penn State Medical Center grounds off 322. This year the event will be expanded to also include the newly completed Englewood Barns complex!

With an expanded selection of artists and entertainment schedule, we expect this will be a wonderful start to the summer art festival season.

Bring mom, bring the kids, bring the neighbors!  The Hershey Artfest has something for you and everyone!


Tell your family and friends you have plans for them Mother's Day Weekend.... whether you're from Hershey, the Capital Region, or just visiting.... join us for this wonderful day of family, friends, community and art, music and flowers.
