Arts & Entertainment

Written with contributions by Kirk Walters of The Walters Group, Ed Buchinski of The Grand Theater, and Ruth Heil

Whether you are the artist or the spectator, the Valley is filled with one-of-a-kind events, indoor and outdoor venues, passionate musical traditions, and many ways to enjoy your pastime or share your talent. While local restaurants often entertain patrons with live music and dancing, many of our talented residents participate and perform in various major vocal and instrumental organizations. Dancers have opened studios to teach others how to move with the music. Visual artists have also taken residency here, often painting or photographing the landscape. From the traditional to contemporary, the arts are alive here.


Each year residents and visitors alike can partake in some of our annual traditions such as: The Freedom Fest and Fireworks held at New Goschenhoppen Church Park for the Fourth of July, Pennsburg-East Greenville Community Day held annually the Saturday after Labor Day; The Upper Perkiomen Downtown’s Annual Halloween Parade, held in late October; our Hometown Christmas Parade; and many fairs and carnivals held at our fire companies, churches, and public parks.

Those who prefer to explore indoor cultural options can choose from The Schwenkenfelder Library or the Grand Theater. At the Heritage Center you will discover various displays and programs ranging from local history to art exhibits. East Greenville’s Historic Grand Theater, built in 1924 and fully restored in 2005, features current films, community events, classic films, and a rare Marr & Colton Theater Pipe Organ. Visitors and residents alike can find opportunities to experience the arts through the following organizations. Many also list special public events on their Websites or publications.
