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.

Over 150 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.


Germantown Avenue will be closed to all vehicular traffic as fine arts and crafts, live entertainment on two stages, 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. Children can create their own works of art in sand or wood or choose a favorite ride in a special amusement park. Admission to the festival is free.

There is a new performance space this year at Abington & Germantown Avenues for Scottish Dancing, Capoeira, Hip Hop, Zumba and South Sea Island dancing.

In case of inclement weather, the rain date for this event is Sunday, October 14th.

This event is sponsored by Subaru, f'Real, and Radio B101.
