The annual fall festival in Bensalem is not going to happen. This decision was made in the interest of public safety.  This event, originally called Bensalem Pride Day  morphed into one of the largest fall festivals in the area.


Daytime was reserved for vendors. People would walk around, see what different vendors had to offer. There was a car show and amusement rides as well.  Nightfall,  the food stations would serve dinner and people would attend a concert and stay for the fireworks. In 2020 COVID-19 has tossed a monkey wrench into everything and people are just starting to get to normal.  The Bensalem Fall Festival brings large crowds and the decision was based on public safety.  Hopefully it will resume in 2021. The decision not to have it was made  in early September.
