As vibrant tawny leaves transform the landscape in the Allegheny Clarion Valley, so too does the little town of Foxburg emulate the color-play on the mountain slopes, with the commencing of the Food, Art & Wine Festival. Throughout the day Sunday, October 12th, more than 40 vendors will pitch their colorful tents and display their whimsical wares and edibles for all to enjoy!
Speckled about the street will be a variety of handcrafted and locally made items from which to choose, as festival goers prepare for the holiday season. Jewelry, knit wear, soy candles, wooden toys, artwork, creative home decor, and much more are among the many fascinations you’ll find, as well as beloved locally produced favorites, such as Pennsylvania Maple syrup products and goods from the Farmers Market. Keep an eye out for newcomers featuring everything from up-cycled furniture to fishing flies, as some of the unique attractions to look forward to. And while you’re at it, be sure to swing by Foxburg Country Club’s booth and shop for golf related merchandise from one of the country’s oldest golf courses.
Chainsaws will growl and wood chips will fly as professional chainsaw wood carvers create a multitude of sculptures live on site. Listen for the sound of melody amongst the buzz and be sure to dance to the sweet sounds of local musicians featuring everything from blues and contemporary rock to modern folk music stylings.
Delight in the aromas of seasonal and festival foods that waft through the air, tempting your taste buds as they mingle with your senses. Kettle Corn, Apple Dumplings, and Philly Cheese-steaks are among some of the favorites to be present as well as delectable cakes from Uzi’s Pastries, traditional funnel cakes, gyros, fries and even pulled pork! You’ll not go home hungry!
Town businesses will feature specials, including the ever famous Clambakes at The Allegheny Grille, on October 11th, the day before the festival, and German foods on festival day. Foxburg Pizza will feature their amazing specialty “Oktoberfest Pizza”, complete with bratwurst and red cabbage, throughout the month of October and will be a sure-fire delight to bring home Sunday night.
Get hold of a taste of the season with a nice, hot cup of Pumpkin Spice or Maple Latte, Spicy Chai, or delectable Hot Cocoa from Divani Chocolatier and Barista to keep you toasty as you weave amongst the booths. Stop by later to make your selection of chocolate goodies to bring home keeping you feeling all warm and fuzzy for days. A limited supply of Gourmet Belgian Chocolate Coated Apples will be the delight of the month, so be sure to grab those right away!
Foxburg Wine Cellars will offer tastings of their enormous variety of Pennsylvania grape wines and feature their Apple Wine in honor of the season. Also be sure to check out their new Wine Shine varieties, a brand new selection of smoked meats and cheeses, and their extensive gift offerings. Enjoy your selection beneath the fall foliage of the grape arbor along with live music, between your rounds from place to place.
All in all the 12th holds the potential for a fantastic day full of fall festivities and delights. See you there!
