About Arts Festival Reading

Arts Festival Reading, presented by GoggleWorks Center for the Arts, welcomes thousands of visitors to explore our historic, post-industrial campus and immerse themselves in the arts. Now in it’s 7th year, Arts Festival Reading aims to act as a conduit for established and emerging artists to network and sell their work, while showcasing the processes of making through live art demonstrations and hands-on workshops. The two-day event also features live music and performances on the Sly Fox Stage, locally-sourced food and craft beverages by Belly: Kitchen & Drinkery, and much more.

Thank you to our 2017 sponsors
