Art In The Heart Of Germantown
Indeed, the heart of Philadelphia is the community. In addition to the exciting event planned for Small Business Saturday, residents can also support Tuesday’s event, Art In The Heart of Germantown.
Ending November 28th, this initiative aims to harness Germantown’s collective spirit of generosity. As noted in the press release, one of the city’s oldest settlements dating back to the colonial era, Germantown’s vibrant community has played an important role in American history. Many civil rights activists and abolitionists have called it home.
Community support and engagement is vital to keep this eclectic neighborhood of Philadelphia a thriving one.
Indeed, this is a festive way to kick off the holiday season and shop with a purpose. You can get involved and stay informed about upcoming events by visiting The Germantown Arts District official website here.
