Cheltenham Township Holiday Events for the Family 

Shop Glenside’s Winter Fest/Small Business Saturday While Enjoying Holiday Festivities

Cheltenham Township has numerous 2019 holiday events happening between November 30 through December 14, 2019 for the whole family to enjoy including Winter Fest, Holiday Bingo, Wall House 5th Annual Holiday Open House and Family &Pet Holiday Photos, which is a new community event.

Winter Fest: Small Business Saturday: November 30
Small Business Saturday and Winter Fest will be celebrated on November 30th in Downtown Glenside from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Wesley Plaza will be closed to traffic. Winter Fest will feature the shops in Downtown Glenside along with street vendors, treats, hot beverages, and a performance by the Irish Cassidy dancers at 2:30 p.m., and Santa arrives on the firetruck at 3:00 p.m. The Village Carolers will be strolling around town singing carols from 11 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and everyone can join in for the lighting of the Glenside tree at the train station around 5:00 p.m.

Shop at Glenside’s small businesses because an average two-thirds or .67 of every dollar spent at small businesses in the U.S. stays in the local community. Every dollar spent at small businesses creates an additional 50 cents in local business activity as a result of employee spending and businesses purchasing local goods and services, according to the Small Business Economic Impact Study from American Express. Cheltenham Township residents can make a significant impact to local businesses during the holiday shopping season.

Bingo Holiday Party: December 1st
The Center at Hampton House is partnering with the Cheltenham Township Parks and Recreation Department to bring Bingo Holiday Party to Rowland Community Center on 400 Myrtle Avenue in Cheltenham on Sunday December 1st from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m.  The cost is $5 per person and there will be prizes and surprises during Bingo.
