Performer Information

Colorscape Chenango Arts Festival is the premier arts and music Festival in the Southern Tier region of New York State. For over 25 years, it is increasingly viewed as THE place to see and buy art, listen and even dance to music, and engage the arts in a variety of ways. We are a full spectrum arts festival, with fine arts and crafts, music and performances on three stages, literary arts, and Art Zones where children and adults can engage the creative process. The Festival takes place every year on the first weekend after Labor Day.
