Since 1993. The festival features over 170 artists, 45 musical performances taking place in two entertainment tents, food vendors' booths, a young artisan sales area, and numerous youth activities. The People's Choice Festival of Pennsylvania Arts and Crafts is a homegrown festival celebrating the work of Pennsylvania artists. The People's Choice Festival is set around the periphery of the Pennsylvania Military Museum grounds in Boalsburg, just 3 miles east of Penn State and State College. The food vendors' booths and artisan tents circle the field. Inside the circle are located two large entertainment tents each seating approximately 400 people, a youth art sales tent, an activity tent, an emergency medical personnel tent, two large dining area tents, four drink booths, and four rest area tents. Children can play on the expansive lawn encircled by the booths and tents.
