Fall for the Southside

For the last 24 years Spring on the SouthSide has been the SouthSide Arts District’s signature food and music event. This October, we are proud to debut that festival’s sibling – who loves pumpkins, Halloween and all things Autumn! Introducing Fall for the SouthSide – our inaugural Autumn Community Festival! The day will include live music, haunted storytellers, crafters, seasonal brews and wine, fall-themed family activities and an Urban Pumpkin Catapult competition! Wee Ghouls and Goblins can come in costume to trick or treat in our shops and make sure you bring your appetite for the Lehigh Pizza “Eat A Wing” Competition benefitting New Bethany Ministries!

No festival is complete without Food & Drink – and we are excited to introduce the Taste of the SouthSide Food & Drink Passport – your guide to the best food & drink SouthSide Restaurants have to offer! Enjoy 10 sample-sized signature dishes or drinks of your choice from your favorite SouthSide restaurants and retailers! Then join us for an after-party at the Comfort Suites Hill to Hill Grille for appetizers, drink specials, pop up vendors and music!
