What is Penn Fest?
Sometimes, Penn Avenue in Richfield is fairly quiet, and sometimes it's bumper-to-bumper with cars, but neither will be the case on Sunday, September 16 from Noon to 5:00 pm. That's when Open Streets at Penn Fest happens. On that day, Penn Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic and cars will be replaced with fun activities like music, dancing, crafts, sports, kids entertainment and more! People are welcome to ride bicycles or stroll down the avenue to enjoy the street without motorized vehicles to contend with. Businesses along Penn Avenue will be showcased and will be a part of the fun! The event is one mile in length and attractions are spread out along the entire stretch of Penn Ave., creating an active and entertaining environment for all.
Sign up your sports league, youth group, business, or just about any organization for participation in Open Streets at Penn Fest. It's a great chance to show off your talents, recruit new members, or just plain have fun! We'll reserve a section of the street for you. Simply fill out and return the appropriate form:
