Yes, Penn State contributes to local arts by hosting free and paid concerts and public performances across our campuses. These performances are open to the public.

On the Univeristy Park (main) campus, the reports and projects page for the Center for The Performing Arts at University Park lists more than dozens of performances throughout each year (many of which were performed on multiple occasions). The Center for The Performing Arts is only one of several entities around the campuses providing performances for the community. An example of an annual event open to campus and community is the Penn’s Woods Music Festival.

On other Penn State campuses, there are vibrant arts programs that are open to the public.
