Second Landenberg Day enjoys great weather, vendors, food and music
At the first Landenberg Day on Aug. 6, 2016, Joseph Birmingham took temporary shelter from the intense heat in the air-conditioned space behind the tasting room at Borderland Vineyard.
Despite temperatures that climbed to well over 100 degrees, Birmingham, the creator of the event, saw more than 1,000 visitors enjoy the festival's initial foray into the local social calendar. This past Saturday, beneath a picturesque blue sky and a persistent, cool breeze, Birmingham stood front and center, as the second annual Landenberg Day welcomed another large crowd to a full day of sights, sounds and tastes.
"It's pretty evident, based on the reception and the reaction of everyone here, that the community needs this," he said. "People are proud of living in Landenberg. They're proud of being a crafter in Landenberg. Everyone is totally enrolled in this festival, so we're making it an annual event and keep it at Borderland for years to come."
Crafters included the Crazy Crafter, Fibersmith, Leashes by the C's, Mike's Lighted Bottles, Northen Roots Metalsmith, PJ's Wood Crafts, Scottish Sisters, Woodn't It Be Lovely and Young Living Essential Oils.
Business and retail booths were held by Berkshire Hathaway, Cornerstone Martial Arts, D'Amico Law PC, Dance HDC, Fitchett Chiropractic, Homes for Heroes, Jennersville Insurance, LuLaRoe Select by Tara, Opulenza Designs, Passionista, Progressive Fitness Coaching, ServPro of Kennett/Oxford and Touchstone Crystal.
Refreshments were provided by Borderland, Michoacana Ice Cream, M n M, Mama Mia Continental Fusion and The Polish Connection.
Live entertainment was provided by Al Smith, Revolution Heroes, Jared Horning and 2uesday Nite.
State Sen. Andy Dinniman and Rep. Eric Roe made appearances at the event.
