This fall, Rittenhouse Square welcomes more than 100 talented artists for The Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen Fine Craft Fair. Slated for a full weekend—October 7th through the 9th—the festival draws a large crowd of art lovers from around the area. Guests of the event will find an array of beautiful handcrafted items surrounding the square including jewelry, watercolors, photographs, sculptures, and ceramics. While many of the artists are from Pennsylvania and its surrounding states, crafters from as far away as Florida and Illinois will showcase work at this festival too. The items at the craft fair are available for purchase, but there is no admission cost for those who want to attend the event.
Rittenhouse Claridge is right in the middle of the action—the craft fair grounds run around Rittenhouse Square, including the sidewalk right across the street from the residences. The craft fair runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Not only is this craft fair a great event, but it’s also a great excuse to get outside and enjoy the fall weather!
