Lansdowne Arts Festival

The Lansdowne Arts Festival is a project of the Lansdowne Economic Development Corporation (LEDC).

According to The Lansdowne Arts Festival site, the festival is a weekend-long event featuring an array of creative and performing arts, including painting, crafts, sculpture, jewelry, live music, drama, spoken word and children’s events. Set in the historic suburb of Lansdowne, Pennsylvania, the 2009 edition of the festival has grown to include more than 32 artists and 15 musical acts.

All festival events (art, music, spoken word and plays) will be held at the historic Twentieth Century Club at 84 S. Lansdowne Avenue in Lansdowne.

The Arts Festival is a rain or shine event. Musical performances are held under a huge tent while art exhibits and other performing artists are inside the Twentieth Century Club. The entire borough of Lansdowne is brimming with activity the entire weekend, including Saturday’s Lansdowne Farmers Market, another rain or shine event that takes place just up the street from the Arts Festival.

City Planter

Located at 814 N. 4th. St. Philadelphia PA 19123, City Planter offers a very large selection of garden containers and planters. We picked up some supplies to start a mini terrarium project as well as some other ideas to introduce to our garden at home. Definitely a place worth stopping by if you’re interested in adding some character to an inherited garden.


Lansdowne Farmers Market

The Lansdowne Farmers Market (LFM) starts tomorrow and will run through the end of October. As mentioned on the site:

The best friend you can be to the Market is to be a good shopper — come regularly and make purchases! Next best is spreading the word by telling friends, handing out LFM magnets, or displaying one of our fabulous apple-shaped lawn signs. And we can always use a hand setting up or breaking down. Stop by the Market Manager tent and say you want to help, and we’ll find something for you to do.
