Nazareth Center for the Arts

I learned this week that an arts center has opened at 30 Belvidere Street in Nazareth Borough. Volunteers spent the past year renovating the building that previously housed the Vigilance Hose Company No. 1 into an art gallery and venue for musical performances.

The second annual Nazareth Area Holiday House Tour (to benefit the Nazareth Center for the Arts) is Saturday, December 12, 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. In addition to the Nazareth Center for the Arts, nine other properties in Nazareth and Bushkill Township will be included on the house tour. Each home will feature art by a local artist and live music. Tickets are $20.

The Center's blog has more information about the house tour, and lists a few upcoming events. Their current web site is a bit sickly. When you're in Nazareth visiting the Center for the Arts, check out one of these great restaurants (just one or two blocks from the new Center for the Arts):
  • Rios Brazilian Steak House (a meaty bonanza at 127 South Broad Street)
  • Hana Sushi‎ (just opened last month at 6 Belvidere Street)
  • Main Street Garden Cafe‎ (lunch only, 52 South Main Street)
  • Bistro on Main (replaced Dutch N Such at 47 South Main Street)
If you live in Nazareth, please investigate and report back! Or if you're involved in the project, let us know how it's going.

  1. I'm definitely excited to see big things come from this project! Talk to the people who have been working on this project for the past few years and you'll get excited too.
