Each year, Chestnut Hill welcomes autumn with the Chestnut Hill Fall for the Arts Festival, a Sunday full of art, music, great food, boutique shopping and family fun.

During the Festival, 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 200 talented artists from throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and from as far away as New Mexico will have their work on display. The diverse array of artworks will include oils, watercolors, etchings, photography, sculpture, pottery, wood crafts, jewelry and accessories.

The Fall for the Arts Festival is a great way to spend a delightful Sunday afternoon. Between the beautiful art, lively music, delicious food, picturesque setting and good company, you can’t help but have a good time.
