Summer Festival of the Arts seeks artists to show works

Staff report


The 19th annual Summer Festival of the Arts, which will be July 8-9 at and around Youngstown State University, is seeking artists to participate by showing and selling their works.

Artist applications for the juried fine art show are now available, and artists are encouraged to apply by the April 3 early deadline, although applications will be accepted until the event is full. Each application must be accompanied by the $20 jury fee. If accepted, the booth fee is $100. The Summer Festival of the Arts does not rent tables; all artists must submit an application and materials and be accepted by a panel of professional jurors.

Applications for fine artists wishing to sell their artwork in the Artists’ Marketplace are available to download online at or by emailing Lori Factor, festival coordinator, at

More than 80 artists participated in the two-day event last year, which also includes an ethnic festival, jazz concert and multiple family activities.
