With the drop in temperature here in Downingtown, we start to think of great outdoor events like our FallFest, which has created many a jolly Victory fan over the last three years.
The crowds that FallFest brought to our parking lot were amazing to us. In the end, our audience’s appreciation of the event was both a blessing and a curse. Essentially, FallFest, as a free, community festival, outgrew it’s home. Over three years we witnessed growing crowds but had to make the same finite space accommodate our fans. Last year was not the breaking point, but certain issues convinced us that this year might, and we will not play fast and loose with our audience’s safety and well-being.
It was a hard decision to make and the only way we can move forward with a smile is in the knowledge that we are actively working to revive the spirit of FallFest in a similar community event that services a larger community of local businesses and interests, in a space that can properly accommodate it.
Hope to see you at one of our many diverse events in the meantime!
