The annual Saucon Creek Arts Festival is celebrating its fifth year this year, and organizers are seeking participating artists for what they say will be its biggest year yet.
The festival is hosted by the Saucon Valley Conservancy and will be held Saturday, June 1, when Heller Homestead Park in Lower Saucon Township will transform into the largest community arts event in the Saucon Valley.
The festival grounds run along the Saucon Creek, just outside Hellertown borough, and the event will feature live music, food vendors and more from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is free to attend and pets are welcome.
The festival’s centerpiece is a juried art show, which will feature up to 60 artists judged based on creativity, originality, technique and presentation.
“The jury is excited to be able to award up to $1200 in cash prizes to winning booths,” a news release from the Saucon Valley Conservancy said. “Artists will be juried day-of-show for cash prizes.”
There is limited booth space available, and artists are encouraged to apply now online through Zapp. Applications for the festival are due March 25, and late applications will be accepted until April 15.

The Saucon Valley Conservancy is also seeking new committee members and event sponsors.
