If it is the third Sunday in September, it can only mean one thing in Richfield: Penn Fest. Richfield’s fall festival sees 14 blocks of Penn Avenue closed down for an afternoon. This year, Penn Fest will take place on September 15 from 1-5 p.m.
Annually, more than 8,000 people attend the Open Streets event that was started in 2012. The event is free to attend with music, games and other activities. It is a great opportunity for residents to meet their neighbors and spend a beautiful fall day on Richfield’s west side.
For the thirty-sixth episode of the That’s Rich(field) podcast we sit down with one of the event’s organizers Gordon Hanson to discuss how the event got its start and how it has grown over the years.
