Food from the best restaurnts in the area. Typically third Sunday in September. I love the seafood such as shrimp, crab cakes and lobster tails that is available

Such a pleasant stroll around West Chester Borough to sample foods from the areas restaurants. The only thing I'd recommend to the vendors is to serve smaller portions, there is so much I want to sample.

Have been to a couple of the Restaurant Festival's and this one was also done very well. Lot's of food to try and unlike the chili festival much more space to wonder around. Few locations get overcrowded and it's easy to stroll around and enjoy...More
