SCA Hosting Annual Folk ‘n Fall Music Festival on October 1

The Schuylkill Canal Association presents the Folk ’N Fall Music Festival to celebrate the river, canal and its greenway on Saturday, October 1, 4 PM to 10 PM at St. Michael’s Park, Mont Clare, PA. A combination of music, kayak tours, kid’s games and the unique Frisbee game of KAN JAM sponsored by Sly Fox Brewery will entertain all who participate. Rain or shine.

This annual fundraiser is to support the stewardship of the Schuylkill Canal Park and Lock 60. The entire park has been left battered and with debris strewn all over the area that needs to be cleaned up after the recent Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee extreme weather events. Your support will go a long way in getting the park back to its pre-storm condition for all to enjoy, especially for those who enjoy paddling.

Speaking of paddling; join in with the guided canoe and kayak loop of the Schuylkill Canal and River starting at 2 PM. Bring your own boat and take part in the free, 2-hour paddle before the music festival starting and ending at Lock 60 in Mont Clare, PA. 

Between 4 PM and 10 PM, the fun moves to St. Michael’s Park and Pavilion, adjacent to the Lock 60, where the sweet sounds of Tin Bird Choir, Dan Frantz, and local legend, Ted The Fiddler, will be heard. At 7 PM Echo takes the stage followed by upcoming performer, Casey Alvarez. A master jam session caps the evening’s festivities.

The Sly Fox Brewery will be coordinating the KAN JAM tournament, free to all willing participants (donations will be accepted for SCA.) This exciting 2 person team sport with a Frisbee and modified trash can is a cross between skeet ball and flying horseshoes. Signup starts at 4 PM and the tournament begins at 5 PM. More info on the game KAN JAM can be found at www.kanjam.com or www.slyfoxbeer.com .

Admission to the Folk ‘N Fall Music Festival at St. Michael’s Park, the end of Jacobs St, Mont Clare, is $12 at the gate or tickets can be purchased online at www.schuylkillcanal.org. Kids 12 and under are free. 

This is an event for all ages where kids can enjoy games such as bean bag throw, ladder toss, arts and crafts and sack races. Food, beverages and Sly Fox brew will be available for purchase throughout the evening. Rain or shine.

For more information, to volunteer (we need you), or to sign up your KAN JAM team, contact SCA at 610-917-0021, info@schuylkillcanal.com or go to www.schuylkillcanal.org.

Unfortunately, the pre-festival loop paddle has been cancelled due to too many tree falls along the canal making it difficult to navigate and not enough volunteers to eliminate before October 1.
Also the ongoing issue of sewer spills upriver into the Schuylkill does not create a good environment to promote paddling. Hope to see you all at St. Michael's for a good time listening to great music.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
