ABOUT US

The SouthSide Arts District’s mission is to build upon the community’s vibrant and innovative artistic, cultural, and entrepreneurial heritage to support and enhance economic development in South Bethlehem.

Who We Are

The SouthSide Arts District, an initiative of the Bethlehem Economic Development Corporation, is a downtown revitalization program that works to improve the economic conditions for businesses and institutions located in the core business district of South Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Formally organized in 2015 in partnership with Lehigh University and the Bethlehem Economic Development Corporation, the SouthSide Arts District follows the nationally recognized Main Street Four Point Approach from the National Main Street Program, focused on the developing committees of volunteers committed to the Organization, Promotion, Design, and Economic Vitality of South Bethlehem.

Our Vision

Bethlehem’s SouthSide Arts District will be recognized nationally as a dynamic community where existing businesses thrive and new business want to locate; where visitors and patrons feel comfortable and welcomed; where the diversity and heritage of the community are respected and celebrated; and where community stakeholders work together to plan for a vibrant future.
