History of the Keuka Arts Festival
The Keuka Arts Festival is a fine art and skilled craft show held annually on the second weekend in June, at the Penn Yan Boat Launch along the Keuka Lake Outlet. The Keuka Arts Festival was once held at Keuka College and was such a missed event of the summer that a group of art lovers decided it was time to revive the festival.
The Festival committee's dream was to see the festival meander along the beautiful Keuka Lake Outlet Trail that spans from the Penn Yan Boat Launch Site through downtown Penn Yan. The Outlet Trail is a favorite path for walkers and bicyclists, and the committee's vision is that there are vendors and activities along the trail leading to downtown Penn Yan.
