About the Fall For The Arts Festival

Each year Chestnut Hill welcomes Autumn with The Chestnut Hill Fall for the Arts Festival.  Everyone is invited to enjoy a day of art, music, culinary delights and boutique shopping as Germantown Avenue, between Willow Grove and Rex Avenue is transformed into an outdoor arts and crafts marketplace.  Chestnut Hill serves as a backdrop for more than 150 talented artists from throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and from as far away as New Mexico. A fabulous array of artistic choices is on display including oils, watercolors, etchings, photography, sculpture, pottery, wood crafts, jewelry and accessories!  The Makers Village aims to celebrate both the beauty of a finished piece of art as well as the act of making it. Germantown Avenue is closed to all vehicular traffic as fine arts and crafts, live entertainment, exhibits, and children’s rides and activities, take place up and down the street between the 8000 and 8600 blocks of Germantown Avenue. Visitors can stroll the Avenue to view and purchase fine arts and crafts, enjoy live music or dine al fresco.  Admission to the festival is free.

Festival attractions include:

  • Over 100 distinctive vendors, including 50+ new local artists and artisans
  • Children’s Amusement Zone: Includes face-painting, and train rides.
  • Live Music: Stages on Germantown Avenue at Bethlehem Pike and Hartwell Lane
    • Dukes of Destiny, City Rhythm, Arlene Hilton
  • Food and Drink: Explore delicious offerings on the street from participating vendors, and explore Chestnut Hill’s full list of dining options.
