You’ve done brunch, shopped every Fall sale in town and there is nothing good at the movies. Darling, look elsewhere for weekend inspiration. How about something that includes a little sunshine, a little atmosphere, a little culture? No matter where you are in the Greater Philadelphia area, there’s an arts festival on tap that can meet your every need.
Doylestown Arts Festival – September 10 & 11
Looking for the perfect piece for the entry foyer? Check out the local talent at this sprawling show and market, which takes over State and Main streets. Duck into tents to discover amazing wares, then head to the Food Court for sustenance. Looking for some decor for the front yard, too? Stop by the scarecrow-making tent to stuff your work week frustrations into the perfect Autumn accent.
The Doylestown Arts Festival will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Visit www.doylestownartsfestival.com for more information.
Lansdowne Arts Festival – September 10 & 11
Held at the Twentieth Century Club (a bonus if the skies look stormy), this show has a wide variety of artists on display. If you are feeling creative yourself, partake in one of the classes in everything from Polaroid to plaster. Live music will fill the air, and if you go by Saturday, head up the street to the Lansdowne Farmers Market for some local eats.
The Lansdowne Arts Festival will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Visit www.lansdowneartsfestival.com for more information.
