As summer winds down, the Landmark Towns of Bucks County welcome Autumn with a full calendar of fairs, festival and fun events for the entire family. The boroughs of Bristol, Morrisville, New Hope and Yardley, invite you to share in some of Bucks County’s great bounty of artisans, entertainers, and vendors.
September kicks off in Morrisville with the annual Labor Day Auto Show and Mayor’s Picnic. Visit Williamson Park on North Delmorr Avenue from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM for an afternoon filled with music, vendors, games and a car show organized by the Delaware Valley Road Runners Car Club.
The New Hope Arts & Crafts Festival always draws a crowd to this great canal town.
Bring your own lawn chair or blanket on September 18th and enjoy the sounds of musical guests Earl “Speedo” Carroll and the Cadillacs (see video below), Larry Chance & The Earls, The Original Orlons and The Tymes at the annual Bristol Borough Doo Wop in the Park.
The weekend of September 25th and 26th is host to two outstanding fall festivals, Yardley Borough’s Harvest Day, and New Hope Borough’s Fine Arts and Crafts Festival. Artists and crafters show their wares on Afton Avenue and throughout Buttonwood Park for the 41st Annual Yardley Harvest Day. From 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM enjoy the musical entertainment and food vendors while perusing the handmade crafts.
