Susquehanna County’s “Harvest Of The Arts”

Nestled in the Endless Mountain region of Northeast Pennsylvania lies Susquehanna County. The month of October has been chosen to celebrate the arts and artists who have made this beautiful area their home, or have been inspired when they had lived or worked in the area.

This year, historic Susquehanna Depot will be hosting the annual Northern Tier Cultural Alliance traditional and folk art show: From Heart to Hand – a month-long celebration of the traditional arts of Pennsylvania.

On October 6, we will be bringing in the local harvest of the arts. Area children are invited to present both fine and performing arts. There will be an indoor youth art show on Main Street, plus a complimentary luncheon and story-telling for children ages 3 through 10.

Local crafters will exhibit their talents indoors. An outdoor market will feature the bountiful harvest the county has to offer. An adult fine arts show will be showcased in the historic Erie Railroad Station, now the Starrucca House.

The grand finale will be an Art Auction on Sunday, October 7, to be held at the Starrucca House. Tickets may be purchased for the cocktail party running from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. Proceeds to benefit furtherance of the arts in Susquehanna County.

“Our goal is to promote art appreciation and awareness and showcase Susquehanna County artists and their diversity,” stated chairman Alice Deutsch. The event is open to all artists and craftsmen, both amateur and professional. For more information send inquiries to or call 756–2044.
