Saucon Creek Arts Festival Celebrates History, Art in Saucon Valley

The Saucon Valley Conservancy held its 4th Annual Saucon Creek Arts Festival at the historic Heller Homestead Park in Lower Saucon Township Saturday, and the event attracted quite a crowd. Along with more than 50 juried artists exhibiting their paintings, fine art photography, ceramics, jewelry and much more, the festival featured live entertainment, children’s activities and guided tours of the Heller House and the Four Square Herb Garden. The Colony Meadery was there to sell its mead–a honey-fermented drink–and the Lehigh University Füd Truk partnered with local gourmet grocery store, Saylor’s & Company, to offer healthy food options, festival favorites and breakfast items.

Members of the Colonial Quilters Guild showcased their quilts in the Homestead Gallery, while Dave Fry and Godfrey Daniels returned to provide live music throughout the day. The Heller Homestead is adjacent to the Saucon Creek and near the Saucon Rail Trail, just outside Hellertown. More information about the conservancy can be found at SauconValleyConservancy.org.
