Rittenhouse Square spends the weekend with arts and food

    There’s a lot going on in Rittenhouse this weekend, and it began today on the square.

    The Rittenhouse Square Fine Art Show is back for a three-day showing at 18th and Walnut. The nation’s oldest outdoor original artwork show boats more than 140 artists of the professional and student varieties.

    The event coincides with Blockbuster Saturday, which turns 18th Street into a giant outdoor cafe and farmers market. Uwishunu has the exact times of both events.
