37th Annual Chester Bowl Fall Fest is September 17

Come celebrate all things Fall at Chester Bowl. It’s the 37th annual Chester Bowl Fall Fest at Chester Bowl, 1801 East Skyline Parkway on Saturday, September 17. The regional craft fair runs from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Over 130 vendors will be selling locally and hand-made items.

Walk through the farmers market and enjoy a great line up of music while you shop. Taste the delicious food from 10 food vendors.

There is a $5/person or $10/family donation accepted at the entrance. This money goes to support Chester program scholarships for kids and families who participate in the winter skiing and snowboarding program and/or summer camp. According to organizers, the Chester Bowl Improvement Club awarded over $32,000 in winter scholarships last winter, and over $20,000 were awarded as summer camp scholarships this year.
