Central Pennsylvania’s Festival of the Arts (Arts Fest) - July 11-15, 2018

You can almost feel the “Happy” in Happy Valley during the annual Arts Festival in State College! Street painting, outdoor concerts, art exhibits, and more await you at this downtown festival. Bring your family, meet up with friends, reunite with fellow Penn State alums…it’s all here!

To accommodate as many of our guests as possible for popular events, many of whom travel from a distance, we ask that you contact us with cancellation requests for these dates at least 30 days before the arrival date. Reservations made less than 30 days prior to arrival are non-refundable.

Beginning 30 days prior to arrival, non-refundable deposits will be processed in the amount equal to the room and tax for the Friday and Saturday nights of the stay (where applicable). Any non-guaranteed reservations at that time will be released to guests on our waitlist.

Early departures are non-refundable.
