Seventh annual FallFest scheduled for Sunday
The seventh annual Downingtown FallFest presented by Victory Brewing Company will be held this Sunday.
Downingtown FallFest is a Downingtown-Thorndale Regional Chamber of Commerce event that brings a crowd of visitors to the borough for food, crafts, music and the Victory Brewing beer garden. Chamber members said they expect 5,000 to 7,000 people to attend the event which runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“This is our largest FallFest ever, with over 170 vendors registered to participate,” said Mike Glover, president of the chamber. “Again this year, our vendor layout will utilize both Green Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. This layout, while great for vendors and guests alike, showcases both the open-space and retail aspects that make Downingtown such a great place to live and work.”
Food vendors feature Downingtown restaurants, including Amani’s BYOB, Bakers of Buffington, St. Anthony’s Restaurant, and Victory Brewing will be there along with Dos Hermanos Tacos, Gigi’s Caribbean American Soul Food, Shrimpman, Thai Master Grill, The Cow and The Curd, Nooner’s Wood Fired Pizza, Righteous Felon Beef Jerky, Dia Doce, Nick Merlino Pig Roast and more.
Bands playing at FallFest are School of Rock, Walton Marquette Project, Gina Miller & Division Highway and The Punk Junkies.
Steve Plaugher, executive director at the Chamber, said FallFest is possible with the support of its partners, Victory Brewing Company, Downingtown Borough and Downingtown Main Street.
“Our sponsors really stepped up this year to help us bring an excellent event to the community,” Plaugher said.
