2019 News

We are well underway with plans for the 7th Annual PA Firefly Festival.  We know many of you are looking forward to the firefly season based on the subscriptions to the newsletter, emails and phone calls requesting information.  We released a newsletter on February 14th and many of you have subscribed since that time and maybe missed out on the information.   So, click here  to read the February newsletter. 

The most important news is our fundraising event with The Bridge Builders Community Foundation during the Week of Giving, March 18-22.  If you want to support our mission of firefly education through celebration, then you can contribute to the PA Firefly Festival online during that week and help us to multiply the donations.  Your contributions of $25 or more will be collected through the Bridge Builders Foundation and then distributed to us with the chance of generating matching funds from other organizations to help us increase the dollars.  Click here to make your tax-deductible donation between March 18 and 22, just 10 days away. Thank you!

Since the February newsletter, we've also added another event before the PA Firefly International Film Festival on April 20th.   The PAFF and FAAC Painting Workshop with Ibiyinka Alao.  Ibi is a United Nations Ambassador of the Arts from Nigeria. He is a painter and filmmaker who has become a good friend and supporter of the PA Firefly Festival and Forest County.  His film "My Fireflies" will be screened later that evening at the film festival.  Ibi will conduct a painting workshop for all ages and artistic abilities from 1-3 pm at the MACA.  Registration is $20 per person and limited to 40 painters.  Call 814-230-2035 or email pafireflyfestival@gmail.com to register by April 14.

The 2019 PA Firefly Excursion schedule is developing as well, and as dates and locations become confirmed we will release more information.  Stay tuned to the PAFireflyfestival.org website, and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest.
