October 7-8 / 10am-5pm

Now in its 6th year, Arts Festival Reading is the culmination of GoggleWorks’ mission to nurture the arts, foster creativity, promote education, and enrich the community. As our largest annual special event, GoggleWorks welcomes thousands each fall for Berks County’s premier art and fine craft festival. Visitors immerse themselves in the arts as they explore GoggleWorks’ city-block sized campus, discover the finest craft artists and vendors, experience demonstrations of virtuosic technique, explore the work made in our juried artist studios, taste local flavors and craft beverages, sing along with musical artists, and connect with other attendees who are excited about the arts.
