Celebrate the return of “sweater weather” in Historic Downtown Glendale at the 29th Annual Front Porch Festival & Old Towne Marketplace.
The event goes from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14 at many of the shops and eateries throughout the Historic Catlin Court and Old Towne Entertainment Districts. Fall-themed activities include make-and-take crafts, seasonal flavored menu items, specialty tea experiences, and autumn-inspired gifts and décor.
In addition, experienced artisans, and specialty crafters will have displays and live art demonstrations all throughout the area.
Returning this year, enjoy the Scarecrow Stroll where guests can spot uniquely decorated seasonal scarecrows on display at the front doors and porches of many of the shops and eateries. Also, begin (or add to) the Downtown Glendale Charm Bracelet featuring an autumn-themed charm.
A Kindness Rock painting booth will be available for attendees to decorate two rocks; one to keep and one to hide in Downtown Glendale.
Begin at the Arizona Information Center located at Memory Lane Trinkets and Treasures (5836 W. Palmaire Ave.) to pick up the activity list and event map.
The Front Porch Festival & Old Towne Marketplace is sponsored by the Historic Downtown Glendale Merchants Association in partnership with the Historic Downtown business community.
