On Sunday, October 9 from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., the streets of Chestnut Hill will ring in autumn as the town celebrates the season with their annual Fall for the Arts Festival, an all-day event that showcases local artistic talent, delicious eats and live entertainment.
The festival, taking place on Germantown Avenue between Willow Grove and Rex Avenues, will showcase the work of more than 150 artists, hailing from throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, in an outdoor marketplace. Paintings, photography, sculpture, pottery, crafts, jewelry and much more will line the street, available for purchase.
While perusing the artwork or shopping at the local boutiques, enjoy some live tunes on one of the two stages that will be presenting live entertainment throughout the day. A new addition to this year’s festival is the performance space at Abington and Germantown Avenues, which will be featuring Scottish Dancing, Capoeira, Hip Hop, Zumba and South Sea Island dancing all day.
Between the 8000 and 8600 blocks of the cobblestoned town, children’s rides and activities will be offered, including sand art, wood crafts and rides. You can also choose from any of Chestnut Hill’s delicious restaurants like Tavern on the Hill, Avenida, Campbell’s, etc. right on Germantown Avenue for lunch or dinner, many of which will offer outside seating and special menus.
Bonus: parking in Chestnut Hill will be at a special rate of $5 for the event. See you there!
