Family Arts Festival at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts

Philly & the ‘burbs

Indulge that inner Andy Warhol by helping create an interactive installation with 7,000 cans at the Free Family Arts Festival, Sun. afternoon at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Kids can play giant board games, watch live animal drawing and go on a scavenger hunt through the galleries.

Skip over to Skippack for the 41st annual Skippack Days, the town’s largest event of the year. The  kid-centric fun includes face and pumpkin painting all weekend long.

Music, food and plenty of arts and crafts will line Germantown Ave. during the Chestnut Hill Fall for the Arts Festival, Sun. from 11am-5pm. Keep the kids happy with amusement rides and sand or wood art projects.

South Jersey

Kids can make faux stained-glass pumpkin window hangers, paint a mural or marvel at the oh-so-sincere glass pumpkin patch at Millville's Wheaton Arts’ Festival of Fine Craft, Sat. and Sun. from 10am-5pm.

The Collingswood Book Festival is a novel way to spend a Saturday. From 10am-4pm, kids can hang out in Loompaland Alley and watch live entertainment, create their own hand-drawn comic book and listen to child and young adult storytellers.

Town fall festivals rev into high gear with the Evesham Harvest Fest on Sat. and the Blackwood Pumpkin Festival on Sun.


Autumn at Winterthur’s a well-oiled machine. On Sat., kids can operate a pumper truck, milk a mechanical cow and explore 30-plus pieces of large equipment (including a full-fledged fire truck) at the museum’s second annual Truck and Tractor Day.

Have a boatload of fun at the 37th annual Coast Day in Lewes, Sun. from 11am-5pm. The critter touch tanks will be filled with sea dwellers from horseshoe crabs to dogfish sharks.
