3 Reasons Why You’re Going to Love the Westmoreland Arts and Heritage Festival


The Art Displays

The Westmoreland Arts and Heritage Festival is one of our favorite festivals in the Laurel Highlands. The main attraction is by far the art exhibits. You can marvel at some exquisite pieces and creations by local and national artists. Discover the 200 artist booths at the Artist Market and remember to check the event schedule to learn more about specific arts-related events! We particularly love the Literary Arts Poetry & Short Story Contest and the performing arts exhibition. 

The Delicious Food

In addition to fabulous arts and crafts booths, the Westmoreland Festival offers a great variety of food vendors. No matter what you are in the mood for, you’re sure to find something delicious that everyone in your group will enjoy. Please your taste buds with a snack like kettle corn or save your appetite for a full meal! When your stomach starts growling, head over to some of the area’s best restaurant booths and try their signature dishes. 

Its Proximity to Oak Lodge!

It’s one thing to attend an exciting local event, but it’s another to have to drive hours to get to it! The great news is that the Westmoreland Arts and Heritage Festival is only a short distance away from one of the top Laurel Highlands B&Bs—30 minutes, to be precise. Oak Lodge is nestled in the heart of the rolling hills–  and offers peace and serenity for travelers looking for an authentic Pennsylvania stay.
