It’s that time of year again! Musikfest! If you’re new to the Bethlehem, Pennsylvania Music Festival, it’s the largest free music festival in the country. This festival is not just about the music, it’s also about community and of course the many food options.

On August 1st, Musikfest will kick off with a preview night at The Windcreek Steel Stage with the legendary group, Earth Wind & Fire. Adding to the fun on the first night are local favorites, The Groove Merchants and Post Junction.

Eleven days of music across Bethlehem is absolutely unreal! Music is not the only thing that ArtsQuest offers! Need a laugh? Be sure to swing by The Lehigh Valley With Love Comedyplatz. They will be running shows both weekends on Saturday & Sunday afternoons 4:30 PM. This platz will feature comics from right in The Lehigh Valley as well New York City and Philadelphia.
