The Log House Arts Festival happens on the Community Arts Center’s 2.5 scenic acres in the Westmont section of Johnstown, PA. The festival is one of the largest fundraising efforts that the Center does each year, hosting over 10,000 visitors annually and is a special event/fundraiser geared toward any quality handcrafted Artist/Craftsman willing to sell and/or demonstrate original work. The festival features hand-crafted items, including jewelry, pottery, florals, rugs, crafted wood and decor, tole, plants, fabric items, handbags, sweatshirts, furniture, Steelers “gear,” metal artwork, slate artwork, fudge, wine, and a distillery. Craftspeople are juried and carefully selected to create a balanced mix of crafts so that the festival represents a wide cross-section of arts and crafts, and fine arts. The Community Arts Center does not take commission from the craftsmen and there is no admission fee/charge for the public, including the "Kids' Kingdom" section of the festival, dedicated to inspiring a creative arts and crafts environment of activities for children and youth. The objective is to provide free, educational, cultural attractions to the public, as well as to give the public an ideal opportunity to purchase works of art and handcrafted items directly from craftsmen and artisans. Our festival is highly publicized, and every year the Community Arts Center tries hard to add new attractions, craft vendors, food, music, and entertainers.
