It’s late September and I really should be………..at a festival somewhere ? We’ve got you covered. On a smaller scale, there is Fall on the Farm in Kutztown featuring live music from Brother Louv (Sat) and Out of the Orchard (Sun). both shows at the Rodale Institute start at 11 am. On a larger scale, you have the Riverside Festival of the Arts in Easton. Doyle and the Dudes get things started on Saturday at 11 am. The festival finishes up with possibly the best 1-2-3 punch you’ll find anywhere on Sunday. Come see Billy Bauer (duo, 2pm), Roi and the Secret People (3pm) and Dear Anna (4pm), all on the Scott Park Stage. There’s lots of great music in between, too. for a full lineup, visit https://www.EastonRiversideFest.org.
