For the first time since 2019, Artsfest in Harrisburg (May28-30) may feel normal this weekend. The biggest difference this year is that the event will be held at Riverfront Park after last year’s sojourn to City island. Normal probably is not a good word to describe Artsfest because it is one of the premiere events in Central Pennsylvania.

According to the City of Harrisburg, Artsfest will feature more than 150 juried artisans and craftsmen from across the country, selling handcrafted works in 14 categories.

There also will be 50 groups entertaining throughout the weekend and more than two dozen food trucks.

We’ll learn more about Artsfest in Thursday’s Smart Talk from Harrisburg’s Director of Communications Matt Maisel and Carrie Wissler Thomas, Executive Director of the Art Association of Harrisburg.
