Did you know that we have a world famous music and arts festival right in our hometown of Bethlehem? Yes, indeed we do! Musikfest, which is presented by the nonprofit ArtsQuest, started in 1984 to provide a voice to the arts and help revitalize Bethlehem’s Main Street area. Today, Musikfest offers over 500 music and art performances over an amazing 10 days August, making it the largest free admission music festival in the United States.
Our partner business, McCarthy’s Red Stag Pub and Whiskey Bar, is the proud sponsor of the Red Stag Pub Platz (otherwise known as Liederplatz) — located diagonally from the Red Stag Pub. You can actually sit with your favorite pup on our Paddy-O and listen to the music playing in this area. We are also a designated “Fill Your Mug” spot on the Musikfest map. Slainte!
Make sure you browse through the special Musikfest promotions within Donegal Square to get you ready for Celtic Classic…because it happens EVERY September. We wouldn’t want you to not be “Celtic Fest Ready” with a new kilt!
If you grew up in the Lehigh Valley, you know the magnitude and work that goes into this festival, and the millions of people it has brought to this area over the past 34 years. If you’ve never been to Musikfest we would LOVE to see you this year!!
