No town throws a party quite like Kennett Square, and the September calendar is full of great events. The month's festivities kick off with the 34th annual Mushroom Festival this weekend, as well as the gala opening of a new show at Square Pear Gallery, "Spaces & Faces." We're also looking forward to welcoming 100+ craft brewers to the 22nd annual Kennett Brewfest on September 28th. Tickets for Brewfest are still available but going fast.
Here in Kennett Square we honor the Hispanic cultures of so many in our community during National Hispanic Heritage Month, September 15-October 15. The celebrations begin on September 15th at 3 pm with a community picnic hosted by Casa Guanajuato at Anson B. Nixon Park with food trucks, music, flags, a special ceremony, and traditional costumes. On September 19th, the final Third Thursday of the season will have a special focus for National Hispanic Heritage Month with music by Trio Voz Y Sentimiento and activities organized by Casa Guanajuato and LCH. "These events reflect the rich cultural diversity of our small town, and we encourage residents and visitors alike to participate and enjoy all that Kennett Square has to offer," says Tom Sausen, President, Historic Kennett Square Board of Directors.
And last but not least this month, our Fall Restaurant Week (September 29 - October 6th) will showcase Kennett Square's exciting and ever-expanding restaurant scene with special menus and offers throughout the week.
