Art on Chocolate

Art, food, crafts, and live entertainment, all in one place? Plan to attend Downtown Hershey’s springtime arts festival, Art on Chocolate, that will be held on Saturday, May 13 from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm in Downtown Hershey.

This fine arts and craft festival is open to the public, and admission is free! In addition to the more than 150 artists, fine craftsman, and food vendors on site, Art on Chocolate will also feature kids crafts, face painting, and local student artist displays. There will be multiple food areas for added convenience, and this year you can expect two stages featuring live music and entertainment. Art on Chocolate 2017 is shaping up to be the biggest one yet, and we have expanded our event area to accommodate the growing crowds and vendors! We’ll post information on parking options, in addition to road closures and posted detours on

Last year’s event drew artists exhibiting a variety of specialties, ranging from fine art to photography, glass making to clothing, and jewelry to paintings and drawings. For a better idea of what you can expect, check out the list of last year’s vendors on the Downtown Hershey website.
