Over 150 vendor stands will be set up at the Fall for the Arts Festival for shoppers to browse through.

On Sept. 25, Germantown Avenue in Chestnut Hill will be closed off to vehicles from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the neighborhood's Fall for the Arts Festival. 

This marks the 32nd year that the fine arts fest has taken place on the street. More than 150 artists will be in attendance, displaying works in oils, watercolors, sculpture, photography, drawings and fine crafts.

For the second year, the "Makers Village" will be back for artists-to-be. The Village invites attendees of all ages to take part in creative interactive activities, along with demonstrations in blacksmithing, weaving, glass blowing, beading, jewelry making and yarn bombing.

Besides offering an artsy afternoon, the festival features live entertainment on two stages, al fresco dining, festival foods, shopping along the avenue and family-friendly activities.
