West Reading Avenues Summer 2017 - 4
WELCOME //// from the publisher
Hello S u mmer !
We hope you enjoyed the last issue of West Reading Avenues,
and were fortunate enough to partake in some of the great
Berks Jazz Fest events. Our community was certainly buzzing
with world-class entertainment.
So what's next? How about Summer on the Avenues! Berks is
still bringing the heat with world-class musicians. Many of the
artists will be performing along the Penn Corridor. There's Berks
Country Fest, produced by Pretzel City Productions, showcasing
many local and national musicians through mid-June. There's
also the Downtown Alive series, returning for its third season
with big-name acts on Penn Street in downtown Reading from
mid-June through the end of August. And, you can continue to
enjoy the great schedule of performances and events coming
to the Santander Arena, Santander Performing Art Center,
The Miller Center for the Arts at Reading Area Community
College, Building 24 and Goggleworks. But, don't forgot the
many talented musicians who perform weekly throughout the
many local bars, taverns and restaurants along the corridor.
But wait, there's more! Don't forget to mark your calendars for
the annual West Reading Art on the Avenues, the annual summer
street fair, being held this year on Saturday, June 17. Spend a
few hours walking the avenues where you'll see approximately
40 national, regional and local artists showcase and sell their
outstanding art, fashion and design pieces. It's a great time to
let the kids have fun with the many kid-friendly activities while
you enjoy the diversity of food, drink, shopping and music
throughout the day. And it's a pet-friendly day!
Most importantly, however, the Avenues is an everyday experience. Visit for breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, shopping,
services, business, lodging, events and sightseeing, or inquire
about great business and housing opportunities within one of
the friendliest, walking communities in Pennsylvania.
We even have great schools...just ask my granddaughter!
