CHESTER COUNTY, PA — Now in its 26th year, Chester County’s annual Town Tours and Village Walks program is a tradition that many local residents and visitors look forward to each summer.
This year, the program has been transitioned to a completely virtual experience due to COVID-19. The new Virtual Summer Series is designed to highlight Chester County’s rich cultural heritage while continuing to protect the health and safety of everyone.
The virtual program will feature six “Live at Five” programs on Thursdays throughout July and August, with the first program taking place this today, July 16, highlighting Art & Architecture in Phoenixville.
The programs will take place virtually through Zoom, a free video-conferencing software for use with computers, tablets and cell phones.
Additional programs include Historic Sugartown (July 23), Hibernia Mansion (July 30), the Village of Yellow Springs (August 6), Historic West Chester (August 13), and a special preview of Kennett Square’s Occupation Day (August 27).
All programs are free to attend, however, sign-up is required. Sign-up for the first program here.
The Chester County Planning Commission is pleased to support the 2020 Town Tours and Village Walks, and thanks this year’s sponsors and volunteers who have worked diligently to make these virtual tours possible.
Sponsors include the Chester County Board of Commissioners, Chester County Planning Commission, Chester County Historic Preservation Network, the Chester County Historical Society, and the Chester County Conference and Visitors Bureau.
