Mayfair Festival of the Arts returns to Cedar Crest College


Special to The Press

The Large Flowerheads, Billy Bauer Band, Supersonic Godfathers, Stacy Gabel, Kendal Conrad, Ben Tyler, Philadelphia Funk Authority and Central City Orchestra, comprised some of the talent providing musical entertainment at the 2024 Mayfair Festival of the Arts hosted by Cedar Crest College May 24-26.

Families enjoyed arts, crafts and children’s activities, along with a variety of food and beverages offered by Mayfair vendors in addition to the live musical performances.

Some of the vendors provided free samples of their culinary delights.

Fleetwood-based Your Chocolate Guys gave out “I Tried Pickle Fudge” stickers to folks brave enough to check out that unusual flavor. (It was actually pretty good.)

The eight Lehigh Valley Press weekly papers and the Times News, Lehighton, our daily sister newspaper, were among the festival sponsors.
