7 Food Festivals Around the Main Line Region This Spring

Spring has arrived on the Main Line, and with it comes activities and events galore. For foodies in the region, there’s nothing quite as exciting as the return of warm-weather food fests. Fortunately, the Main Line region has a fair few on the calendar. Here are the ones you’ll want to bookmark now.

Ambler’s 1st Anniversary Party

April 22, 3-9 p.m.
Well Crafted Beer Co., Ambler

Start off festival season strong at this anniversary party. Not only will there be activities planned throughout the day, but the brewery’s beer garden will turn into a street fair-style space with food vendors, live music and games. Plus, beer aficionados will want to try out the three special releases planned for the day as they listen to tunes into the evening. Dogs are welcome outside, so feel free to bring Fido as well.

Manayunk StrEAT Food Festival

Main St, Manayunk

If you’re the type of person who likes to try out a medley of cuisines, this food fest is for you. Expect to see dozens of the Main Line region’s top food trucks and vendors in attendance, with bites from the likes of Cousins Maine Lobster, Cactus Cantina, Tubby Robot Ice Cream Factory and so many more. A number of shoppable vendors will be onsite as well, and live music will play on two different stages throughout the day.

Dig Into Spring Festival

April 29, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.

More than a food fest, Terrain’s Dig Into Spring Festival celebrates the arrival of garden season around the Main Line. Attendees can look forward to live theater, local vendors, live music and more. Some of the vendors planned for the fest include Revolution Bees, The Farm at Doe Run, Eclat Chocolate and Wayvine Wine.

Food Truck Frenzy

April 29, June 17
Linvilla Orchards, Media

Linvilla Orchards knows food trucks serve some of the most delicious cuisine in the region, which is why it rounds up a handful of regional favorites for its Food Truck Frenzy events. Planned for April and June, the fests feature vendors like 22BBQ, Mojo Loco, Red Stone Pizza, Fiesta Churros, Gotta Lotta Gelata and more. Tickets are required for activities, so the orchard recommends purchasing them in advance if you plan on adding a hayride or train ride with the family to the day.

Spring Wine Fest @4H Center

Montgomery County 4H Center, Collegeville

A 21-plus event, the Spring Wine Fest is all about spotlighting local wineries, distilleries, food trucks and shops in the region. Discount and VIP tickets are available in advance, so score tickets now to make entrance a breeze on the day of the event. As for what to do while you’re there, isn’t it obvious? There’s nothing like sipping and savoring in style during the springtime.

Memorial Day Weekend

May 27-29
Chaddsford Winery

While Chaddsford Winery has so many to-dos planned for spring (wine and cheese tastings and puppy-friendly events, anyone?), foodies will flock to the hotspot during Memorial Day weekend, when the venue prepares to kick off the unofficial start of summer. Expect live music and food truck fare throughout the weekend, as well as the release of the winery’s sangria spritzer.

2023 Hops for Homes Beer Festival

June 17, 12-4 p.m.
Exton Square Mall, Exton

Beer lovers rejoice! Habitat for Humanity of Chester County has teamed up with Bentley Systems, Inc., for its beer-centric fest at the tail-end of spring. Get ready to sip on some of the finest beers and ciders around, or grab a glass of Harvest Ridge Winery vino if that’s more to your liking. Brewers like Be Here Brewing Company, Conshohocken Brewing Company and La Cabra Brewing will be onsite, so there will be a little something for everyone. Throughout the day, enjoy live music and games, then shop from local vendors. All proceeds from the event will help Habitat for Humanity purchase materials to build affordable homes in the county.
