For many area residents, the events and activities that usher in the autumn season in the southern Chester County community rival that of the falling leaves for splendor and attention.

One of those events is Terrain’s annual Autumn Bounty Festival, which will be held on Oct. 2 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the store’s Glen Mills location, as well as at Terrain’s other stores in Devon, Pa. and Westport, Conn.

The Autumn Bounty Festival is our annual effort to welcome in the season for our customers, at a time when all of our products are in, our displays are up, the nursery is full, and the store is looking its very best,” said Diane Stulb, Terrain’s Director of Brand Marketing, who works with Terrain store managers and designers as much as four months in advance of the festival. “We ask our store representatives, ‘What are you all loving about the products that are coming in? What are your customers loving? What do you think the community would want to see more of at the festival?’”

This year’s festival will kick off at 11 a.m. with a pumpkin carving demonstration by Linda Allen, a kid’s coloring station that will continue to 3 p.m., and a Terrain Cafe Chef Fresh Picks’ Menu, featuring the season’s freshest produce, that will be featured throughout the entire festival.

The event will also include wine sales by the glass and bottle from Wayvine Winery; “Terrain Live Theatre,” which will feature the Design by Terrain team demonstrating seasonal projects; a fall marketplace that will invite local makers and artisans; “For Fungus Sake,” offering gourmet mushrooms for sale; the Terrain Market Pop Up offering must-have items for home and garden; and trunk shows by jewelry maker Hattie Weselyk Arden and James and pet portrait artist LouLou Clayton.
“Our goal is always to celebrate the season but to also make it feel like a community event, and that includes inviting artists, makers and artisans in the community whose work we don’t usually carry but feel is a great compliment to what we do at Terrain,” Stulb said. “For many first-time visitors to Terrain, they are often overwhelmed, not knowing where to start and how to take it all in, but our Autumn Bounty Festival is a way to slow down and enjoy events, the design work of our team, the café, the market and the home store, and come upon a wide variety of one-of-a-kind items.”

The Autumn Bounty Festival is free and open to the public. In the event of inclement weather, all events will be cancelled (no rain dates scheduled). Terrain is located at 914 Baltimore Pike in Glen Mills, Pa.
