The Provident Bank, a community-oriented bank with branches throughout northern and central New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania, is sponsoring the 32nd annual MusikFest, one of the largest and most diverse music festivals in the nation. From Friday, August 7th through Monday, August 17th, more than 900,000 people will make their way to Bethlehem with sights set on experiencing music, food and fun.
“Involvement with the community is fundamental at The Provident Bank, so it was only fitting for us to take part in one of the largest events in the Lehigh Valley,” said Chris Martin, CEO of The Provident Bank. “We strive to bring smiles to faces, which is exactly what our partnership will accomplish.”
Festivalgoers will enjoy an array of musical performances, amazing street performers, food and beverages, and much more at Provident Bank Main Street, located on the North Side. Founded in 1984 by ArtsQuest, Musikfest features 500-plus shows on 14 stages over 10 days, 60 food vendors, 40 artisans and a diverse array of family programming including artists-in-residence like Australian contemporary theater company Polyglot Theatre, talented street performers and a special children’s venue called Kinderplatz.
