Historic Kennett Square

What used to be a small village in 1705 still boasts small town intimate, where less crowds and ample parking encourages lingering rather than hurry-through. As one of Pennsylvania’s oldest neighborhoods, Historic Kennett Square is Chester County’s hub for entertainment, arts and culture. A medley of artsy bistros and food markets peppered throughout the town offers food and drink experiences that’ll satisfy any craving.

Every Friday afternoon (throughout the growing season) Kennett Square’s outdoor Farmer’s Market serves up local produce, hand-crafted goods and artisan products – all available in the center of the town. On the first Friday of each month is the Art Stroll, an evening dedicated to art galleries and shops that stay open late to host special events and exhibits, along with restaurants presenting live music and regional fare.  In September, Kennett Square celebrates their agricultural history with the nationally recognized Mushroom Festival and October is for beer lovers tapped into the annual Kennett Brewfest where craft breweries dispense frothy, cold refreshments.  And when it gets cold, horse-drawn carriage rides and select shopping nights featuring discounts and choice gifts make Kennett your buy-local destination.

Historic Kennett Square encompasses one walkable square mile of tree-lined streetscapes sown with historic homes and buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Just three miles from Longwood Gardens and other nearby Brandywine Valley attractions, Kennett Square is your one-stop local destination. Other local attractions include: Brandywine River Museum, The Brandywine Valley Wine Trail, Kennett Underground Railroad Center and Brandywine Battlefield Park.

When visiting, come hungry, as there are a number of dining options available, and ample parking makes it easy to stay awhile and stroll the streets to discover a collection of independently-owned chic shops and galleries. Kennett Square’s active nightlife hums with live music at the Kennett Flash. At this live performance venue, BYOB is encouraged, and the main draw is small crowds and rhythmic collaborations.
