ArtsQuest and the Downtown Bethlehem Association are delighted to introduce Musikfest Marketplace, a convenient way to shop and support your favorite local businesses!

During its 10-day run, Musikfest not only supports artists and musicians, but also creates an avenue for thousands of patrons to explore Bethlehem and visit the many unique and memorable shops and restaurants in the Historic District. As Musikfest goes virtual for 2020, it is crucial that we continue our longtime support of these local shops in every way possible.

“The Downtown Bethlehem Association is excited to partner with ArtsQuest on its virtual experience for Musikfest this year,” says Tammy Wendling and Kelly Smith of the DBA. “Our merchants enjoy hosting thousands of people who come to visit the Historic District during Musikfest. This is an exciting way for us all to remain connected, ‘festing together.” CLICK HERE
