The expo is free and open to all ages, and in addition to demos, workshops and performances, attendees of Young at Art will have the chance to win door prizes, including $100 scholarships towards programs offered by exhibitors organizations, family tickets to a Lafayette College Arts event, Lehigh Valley Phantoms tickets and an IronPigs gift basket including tickets and merchandise. There will also be information about summer camps, year-round classes and lessons available for parents and caregivers.

A sensory room with calm, quiet activities will be available for attendees who need a break from the action, and American Sign Language interpreters will provide interpretation for mainstage announcements and performances.

Young at Art is supported in part by Lehigh Valley Reilly Children’s Hospital, PPL and the Dexter F. and Dorothy H. Baker Foundation. For more information about the event, including a full list of exhibitors and opportunities to volunteer at the event, visit or email Yo********@lv***.org.
