Brand New as of 2014 is the Downtown Glenside Arts Festival. Voted as a “classic town”, Glenside is a vibrant town with unique shops, small dining, and a strong sense of community. In short, it is superbly fitting for such a festival. Glenside Arts Festival is presented by the talented folks at Renaissance Craftables, promoters of high-quality juried fine arts and craft show for over twenty-five years. Bottom line: this is sure to be a well-run, well-oiled, and well-attended event.
The selection of artists is impressive, encompassing everything from metal working and hand-made jewelry to wooden toys, original paintings, mosaics, and fabrics. The festival also includes concession foods, live entertainment, and a wine festival. But Glenside Arts Festival serves double duty as a celebration of the larger Cheltenham community. As such the festival celebrates the winners and participants of the Downtown Glenside Arts Festival Art Contest and the Earth Day Clean-up Volunteers.
Admission is free and parking is in town.
