The entertainment schedule features over 100 different local and regional musical acts from alternative rock and folk to cool jazz and country. Dedicated to enhancing the festival experience, four performing arts stages offer an eclectic array of programs in dance, theatre and performance art. At least one Sonicbids band will be selected and artists will be compensated for their performance. Amount will vary based on artist, but travel expenses and accommodations may be negotiable. They are particularly seeking local and regional acts, but national acts passing through the area may also be considered.


The park is filled with fascinating sights and sounds as more than 250 fine artists, musicians, dancers, theatrical performers, exhibitors and food vendors take part in the five-day celebration. Artists line the beautiful Muhlenberg Lake weaving gorgeous blends of texture and shape down a magnificent mile of visual art booths, performance stages and lively characters to create an explosion of color against the surrounding lake.


Audiences take a cultural journey through authentic native rhythms and dramatic performances that shatter the boundaries between music and theater. And adventures for children include exciting interactive shows with magical characters that leave them mesmerized – plus plenty of creative and artistic activities to stretch their imaginations. The 2010 event drew over 50,000 people.



Artists will be provided full sound, lights, and backline for stages.


Their organizational mission is to showcase visual and performing artists from the region and throughout the world; to expose the community to new art forms and increase audiences for the performing and visual arts; to develop future artists and audiences through educational programming; to showcase the Allentown Parks Systems; and to build a sense of community.
