The 40th annual Fall for the Arts Festival returns to Chestnut Hill on Sunday, September 15, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., transforming Germantown Avenue into an outdoor arts and craft marketplace. The popular family-friendly, pet-friendly event features live demonstrations, children’s activities, live music, culinary delights, and boutique shopping. The streets between the 8000 and 8600 blocks of Germantown Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic to provide ample space for visitors and vendors.

An urban village, Chestnut Hill is well-known for its lush gardens and trees lining the cobblestone streets of Germantown Avenue, as well as architecture spanning three centuries. The Fall for the Arts Festival offers the perfect opportunity to throw on a sweater, grab a Pumpkin Latte, and spend the day exploring a neighborhood brimming with boutique shops highlighting the latest fashion trends while dining at one of the many restaurants serving up delectable dishes for patrons.

The Fall for the Arts Festival attracts more than 250 talented and diverse artists and vendors from the Mid-Atlantic region and locations as far away as New Mexico.
