ArtsQuest Launches New Outdoors Festival in the PA Highlands

step-outdoors-lehigh-valley-logoArtsQuest, the Bethlehem arts organization behind the tremendously popular summer music event Musikfest, is offering a new two-day event focused on promoting outdoor recreation and conservation in the Lehigh Valley and beyond. On May 30th and 31st, Step Outdoors Lehigh Valley will expose visitors to a range of outdoor-focused activities, including nature photography, fly-fishing, orienteering, and even opportunities to try on scuba gear or to create a hand-blown glass hummingbird feeder to take home with you.  The event will also feature raptor demonstrations from Hawk Mountain Sanctuary and a performance by band Trout Fishing in America.

As a part of the festivities, AMC, along with our friends from the D&L Trail, will offer two family-friendly urban hikes on close-to-home trails here in Bethlehem, the D&L, and the South Bethlehem Greenway.

To join one of our hikes, please visit, or email Cathy Reuscher at Group size is limited, so please register soon.
