The Hummelstown Arts Festival Committee has announced that its 36th Annual Arts Festival will be held on Main Street in Hummelstown this Saturday, Sept. 16, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The festival is an event that offers something for everyone with over 160 juried artists, a food court, children’s area and entertainment. It is an annual fundraiser for the Hummelstown Arts Festival with proceeds going toward scholarships and promoting art in the Lower Dauphin community.

This year’s festival committee invites everyone in the community to join in for added fun at the Arts Fest in the Children’s Area. There will be a variety of free crafts and activities for children, including Balloon Art, Face Painting from talented high school art students and a creative caricature artist. Local Boy Scouts will have their Lego race track and the Dauphin County Library will have MARCO, Your Exploration Station … just to name a few.

A DJ will have music playing all day and students from Hershey School of Dance will perform.
