Festival on the Hill is Here!

Join the fall fun at the 63rd Annual Festival on the Hill, Saturday, October 8, 11 am to 5 pm.

The Festival will have its usual mix of music (Mambo Combo!), food, entertainment, arts and crafts vendors, and a fun, interactive kids’ area. The takes place on the 1300 block of Bolton Street and the 200 block of Lanvale Street.


The Bolton Hill Nursery has organized the Festival for the past few years, and this year, they’ll offer Festival T-shirts for sale—now made with organic cotton! and a Pie-in-the-Face contest.

Festival goers will be able to buy a bag of pompoms and “vote” for the person they would most like to see get a pie in the face. Choices include a city councilman, a school principal, a new rector and our favorite, the editor of the Bulletin. The “lucky” winner gets to be hit with their pie FIRST, but all the deserving volunteers will be able to delight in having a cream pie mashed on their face.

Remember, ALL the proceeds from the Festival go to support non-profits that serve the 21217 community. See related article on the recipients of last year’s Festival grants here.)

Come join the fun. See you there!
