“ArtsAltoona is excited to once again give local artists and small business owners the opportunity to sell their handcrafted artisan products and showcase their art to members of our local community. We began our Art Market series in Spring 2021 and have held seasonal events since then. The artists are given promotion through ArtsAltoona on social media and in our weekly newsletter and the chance to meet and connect with the public through their art. ArtsAltoona’s mission is to connect people with the arts to strengthen our communities, and we want the members of our community to come together in celebration of local art! This is a FREE event.”
ArtsAltoona Center has a parking lot and grass lawn. Parking is in the building lot and marked surrounding lots as well as street parking around the neighborhood.
