Here’s a look at what’s going on for families this weekend.
This year’s maze theme is “Bales of Cornwall” which ties into artist Waterl Elmer Schofield’s work on display in the museum. So once the kids tire out from running around in the hay, take them inside to see the inspiration painting, Morning Tide – Coast of Cornwall. Maybe try another run through afterwards to see what connections they can make. Friday 6 to 8 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Art activities on Saturday from noon to 2:30 p.m.
Yes, the Fringe Arts Festival is something the whole family can enjoy! Some kid-friendly highlights this weekend include: Mt. Airy Home Companion, Rainbowtown, Wendy & Peter, and Flim, Flam Phantom Sham. Kids and adults alike will delight in these unique theater experiences.
Check out sample classes in music and dance, enjoy student performances of jazz ensembles and the children’s choir, and chat with faculty about instrument study. Settlement’s Open House runs from from noon to 3 p.m. for students of all ages interested in music or dance instruction.
The booths at the 8th annual Mt. Airy Village Fair all have one rule to follow: be engaging and interactive. The fair offerings are as diverse as the neighborhood itself: There will be a pet parade, circus arts, bees, chickens, food, music, authors, ice cream, pie-eating and so much more!
There will be lots to do on The Hill this Sunday. Clover Market will return to Highland Avenue with one-of-a-kind handcrafted and vintage items, food trucks and kids crafts from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sidewalk sales will be sprinkled all along Germantown Avenue, and parents and kiddos alike can dine on Sunday Brunch specials or pop into one of the many galleries for a peek.
