New name for Lewisburg arts festival

Lewisburg Celebration of the Arts is the new moniker for the more than 40-year-old festival, which this year happens April 26 through May 11, the arts council announced.

The festival is two weeks long, but "the community has always dubbed the last Saturday in April as 'the Arts Festival,' " said Sara Kelley, Lewisburg Celebration of the Arts chairperson.  "We decided not to buck the trend and do the same."

The new inclusive name puts emphasis on the many other events scheduled that are separate from the art show.

The Lewisburg Arts Council is filling out the event schedule and will announce information on its website and in local media as it becomes available. Please visit the website at
