To Do: Fresh Beets Music and Food Festival in Jenkintown

Music, food and fun at the Jenkintown Whole Foods Market.

As an addendum to our recent beet talk, I wanted to point you to this: the Fresh Beets Music and Food Festival at the Jenkintown Whole Foods. On Sunday, August 5th, join Whole Foods in celebrating everything local—from musicians to chefs and food—for free. The festival will be happening in the grocery store’s parking lot, where the mobile stage will be buzzing with local artists like the Jeffhouse Band, New Kings of Rhythm, Peter Moses, David Joel Quartet and David and Melissa.

And to accompany the entertainment, the lot will be filled with farmers’ market vendors, locally made food, live farm animals and tons of children’s activities to keep the tots occupied as you peruse. Christina Pirello, an authority on health foods, will then steal the show with a live cooking demo, where she’ll be dishing out a generous dose of how-to-eat-healthy cooking tips. For a full list of vendors, check out the event page.

FREE, Sunday, August 5th from 2 to 6 p.m., Whole Foods Jenkintown, 1575 The Fairway, Jenkintown.
