The 2015 Haverford Spring Fest is getting ready to take the stage and fill the streets with thousands of attendees for the best day of music, food, and so much more around Philly and the suburbs. 

This year's fest, Sun May 17th Noon until 7 on Brookline Blvd in Havertown PA, is projected to attract over 10,000 attendees. The Fest will offer more of what festgoers loved at the inaugural Spring Fest last year, with a redesigned and expanded layout for more room and better sightlines for the stage. 

New activities, food and drink offerings from the area's best restaurants and pubs, creative and useful craftwork from area craftspeople, and local non-profits showcasing their efforts are all part of a full afternoon of great entertainment for all ages.  In addition, to kick off the fest with even more great music, Haverford Spring Fest will present the first PRELUDE, a night before party with live music from Ashley Leone and The Jump Off at the Oakmont National Pub in Havertown. The PRELUDE will be Sat, May 16th  starting at 6 PM and will offer food & drink specials and plenty of information and excitement of the Fest.
