BLOOMSBURG, PA – Next year’s dates have been finalized for the Covered Bridge & Arts Festival, a popular area event organized each year by the Columbia-Montour Visitors Bureau. The 2022 festival will take place Thursday, October 6th through Sunday, October 9th at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds.
The Covered Bridge & Arts Festival will be celebrating its 40th year in 2022. At this year’s 39th annual event, more than 350 craft and food vendors welcomed an estimated 150,000 visitors to the festival’s new home at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds for four days of shopping, food, and fall fun.
The Festival is critically important to the Visitors Bureau’s mission – to promote tourism in Columbia & Montour Counties. It is also vital for the continued prosperity of the region. In the most recent return-on-investment study that was done for the festival, it was determined that Direct Spending (what visitors buy/spend during the length of their stay) equaled more than $8.6 million. Overall Spending (including indirect and induced spending) totaled more than $14.2 million.
