Vintage Vinyl Journals was pleased to be a part of the Narberth Music and Arts Festival in Narberth, PA (just outside of Philadelphia) on May 6th. The Narberth Music and Arts Festival featured “great food, great drinks, local arts & great music for a great cause” and has been around for many years and draws a pretty big local crowd. This year was the first year they added arts into the mix, usually featuring just music and food.
The Narberth Music and Arts Festival does a great thing by having the event free but asks everyone to give $1 towards Philabundance. Philabundance is our region’s largest hunger relief organization. In fiscal 2011, they acquired 21 million pounds of food, distributed 19 million pounds in their service area and exported 2 million pounds of food to assist other area food banks.
Narberth has a very small-town feel and you can tell it’s a close-knit community which is often rare to find these days. The event was well organized and the MC was a local newscaster who stressed the donations towards Philabundance. Having live music was something that really drew us into this festival, as well as local dancers performing. The musicians that performed where Vox Prophet, Narband, The Lucky Stiffs and Powerhouse. The response to the journals was fairly good for the amount of traffic that was drawn into the festival and being the Artist’s Alley was a new feature for the event.
Thank you to The Narberth Music and Arts Festival for organizing the event and raising money for Philabundance! The Festival will be held again in June and throughout the Fall. Check out the event photos below:
