Fall for the Arts Festival

September 29, 2019 11:00 am

Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia’s Garden District, is having its 34th annual Fall for the Arts Festival on Sunday, September 29th. Staged along cobblestoned Germantown Avenue with a
backdrop of turn-of-the-century buildings, I will be among 150 fine artists and craftspeople selling artwork.
There will be other activities include live music; art-related activities for children; “A Taste of Chestnut Hill” featuring foods from more than a dozen local restaurants; and multiple art and entertainment venues.
This is my first time participating in this event and I hope you will be able to join me!
