The entire City of Bethlehem community has been closely monitoring the developments regarding the coronavirus and its spread.

Following the Center for Disease Control’s recommendations this weekend that organizations postpone in-person events and gatherings consisting of 50 people or more, ArtsQuest is closing the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks and the Banana Factory to the public effective noon, March 16 through at least March 31. All programming at the buildings, including cinema screenings and comedy shows at the ArtsQuest Center and classes at the Banana Factory, have been suspended at this time. 


In addition to the ArtsQuest properties, the City of Bethlehem Redevelopment Authority’s Visitor Center at SteelStacks and Hoover Mason Trestle at SteelStacks are also closed through at least March 31.


We continue to follow this situation closely and will provide additional updates as needed. For the latest updates on the Steel Stacks campus, we ask you that you please visit the ArtsQuest website at www.artsquest.org.


We thank everyone for their understanding during these uncertain times.
