Discover Lansdale has announced the cancellation of their May and June First Friday festivities due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and associated social distancing and mitigation efforts.
First Friday Committee Chairman Keith Heffintrayer said the decision to cancel May was an obvious one, though organizers had initially held out hope for June, prior to Governor Tom Wolf issuing the first stay at home order through April 30.
“At this point, it’s likely that we’ll have to cancel the July event, as well,” said Heffintrayer. “We’d love to sneak one in for Independence Day Weekend, but a lot would need to happen in order to pull that off, and I’m not sure we’ll be at a point where gatherings of that magnitude are advisable.”
Discover Lansdale has seen exponential growth in their First Friday seasons over the past few years, with average crowd size reaching several thousand people each month. The theme-driven events, pieced together by a committee of local business owners, community volunteers and entertainment professionals, have quickly become a staple of Discover Lansdale’s seasonal event lineup, and they were recently voted as Montgomery County’s Best Family Event for 2020.

The Events 2020 issue of DL Mag is available!
While we shelter in place, let's look forward with hope to Lansdale's full calendar of events, right through next holiday season.
Discover Lansdale's Annual Events Issue is just out -- and while you might have difficulty finding a copy in today's environment, we have posted a full PDF version for you to enjoy.
And when our lives return to some semblance of normalcy, you will be able to get a print copy, free of charge, all through the spring and summer months, at all local events and numerous local retailers, restaurants and services.
We hope you enjoy the features -- including the history of Memorial Park, a changing of hands at the Lansdale Beer Tasting Festival, a listing and map of all major events, and how the Lansdale Library is also Events Central.
We will update the events listings as conditions change. And we hope you stay well and safe.
See you soon around town!
Thank you for Restaurant Week 2020!
The borough’s Second Annual Restaurant Week is history, and once again it was a rousing success. Thanks to all the restaurants who participated, and to all the patrons who had great meals and great prices -- and discovered new treasures in town to visit again and again.
Watch for the return of Lansdale Restaurant Week in early 2021.
This year's participants:
Help restore the historic Freight House
Watch for new volunteer opportunities as work continues at Lansdale's historic Reading Freight House.
The exterior deck and old crane hoist are gone, the Liberty Trail is well underway, and the deck's stone piers, made of the same stone as the building, were saved to be reclaimed.
The old wood flooring is still available for sale, in varying lengths at $6 per foot. And we will be selling souvenir benches made from that wood in the near future. All income goes right to the restoration fund.
Also, please consider donating to the effort. Our goal is to have the venue operational in time for Lansdale's Sesquicentennial Celebration in 2022.
