The 3rd Avenue Arts Fest is the first summer festival in Cambria City to highlight the artistic talent of our region!

Festivities including juried artisan booths, live art demonstrations, food and beer, Italian Street Painting Exhibits, performances by some of Johnstown’s Rising Stars, live music from Matt Otis and the Sound from 4-6 PM,  and more!
