Bethlehem, Pennsylvania is a town that is known as the Christmas City. However, we have more going on than just the celebration of one holiday. In addition to being the Christmas City, we’ve become known as the Festival City in some circles. There always seems to be something fabulous going on in town, and that’s just one of the many things we at Sayre Mansion love about our part of the Lehigh Valley. We in Bethlehem know how to celebrate the everyday and our town has embraced a culture that allows us to do so. The old Bethlehem Steel campus has been transformed into an area that encourages artistic endeavors, creativity, and community. What is now known as the SteelStacks is a beacon for those who want to enjoy music and art. We invite you to enjoy this fantastic part of Bethlehem with these upcoming free SteelStacks events.
Built on what used to be the main plant at Bethlehem Steel, SteelStacks is a ten-acre campus featuring numerous venues for artistic expression. The campus hosts concerts, festivals, educational events, family events and community celebrations. SteelStacks events range from big name musical performers to local shows. For instance, Musikfest, the music event of the summer, is held at Steelstacks. The campus isn’t just a great place to see a performance either, fans of the visual arts will find the area the perfect place to see some of the best local artists display their work.
