UPDATE: Chestnut Hill is postponing the Fall for the Arts Festival one week, until October 14, because of predicted rain.
Each year, Chestnut Hill welcomes autumn with the Chestnut Hill Fall for the Arts Festival, an October Sunday packed with art, music, great food, boutique shopping and family fun.
During the fest, Germantown Avenue — the historic boulevard that connects the neighborhoods of northwest Philadelphia with the rest of the city — is transformed into a festive outdoor arts and crafts marketplace.
More than 150 talented artists from throughout the Mid-Atlantic region will have their work on display, including oil paintings, watercolors, etchings, photography, sculpture, pottery, wood crafts, jewelry and accessories. And it’s all for sale.
Stroll the avenue and pick a restaurant for an alfresco meal, enjoy the live music on two stages or let kids create their own works of art in sand or wood or choose a favorite ride in a special amusement park.
It’s totally free, and totally great. Stay tuned for more.
