There is no shortage of art festivals and celebrations in Philadelphia and throughout the region this fall, recognizing flourishing talent among crafters, artisans, and performers.
On Satuday, Sept. 24, Souderton Connects will host the small Montgomery County town’s 10th annual art jam from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The free, family-friendly art festival features more than 30 artists from all over the east coast, along with live music, food trucks, wine tastings, and lots of craft beer.
The festival will take place at 459 Wile Ave. in Souderton, located between Souderton Community Park and Pool. Well behaved, leashed dogs are welcome, as well as people of all ages.
Exhibiting artists will be able to take part in a juried art show, which will be judged by a panel of art industry professionals. Cash prizes will be awarded for fine art, fine craft, and jewelry.
Artists include Autdemma Jewelers, Botanical Funk, Harry Boardman, Knit2Weave, Maddy Made Pottery, and Ochre Nest Art Studio. A full list of art vendors can be found here.
