LOWER MERION - The 9th annual Bryn Mawr Day in the heart of the 19010 is set for Saturday, September 7th from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Multi-generational families come out for this amazing annual event to celebrate the end of summer and beginning of fall. It all takes place rain or shine in the large parking lot in the center of Bryn Mawr (7 N. Bryn Mawr Avenue; Lot #7). Over 6,000 people attended in 2018, and enjoyed engaging with local businesses while dining on local food and listening to local music. Bryn Mawr Day, 2016

The Bryn Mawr Business Association-sponsored “Give and Take Little Circus," featuring clowns, jugglers, stilt walkers and aerial acts, join with a traveling zoo (with pony rides), fire truck rides, and the farmer’s market, with extensive specialty, one-of-a-kind treats. At the heart of Bryn Mawr Day is the Bryn Mawr 100—institutions that have been in Bryn Mawr for at least 100 years. Attendees can hop on a historical tour sponsored by the Bryn Mawr Rotary Club with Bobbie McElroy, secretary of the Lower Merion Historical Society, to learn about the town history. Throughout the day, kids will enjoy face painting and balloon artists.

The Agnes Irwin School is this year’s sponsor for the “Main Stage” with performances beginning at 9:00 am. Featured talent includes Friends’ Central School Chorus, Wolf Performing Arts Center, Willson Vocal Academy, Cool Beans Music, Mikey Junior, The Shipley Singers, Baldwin Musical Performers, and the Agnes Irwin School Bel Cantos showcases our younger talent.

“Bryn Mawr Day is our end of summer ‘welcome back’ community celebration,” said Lower Merion Commissioner Scott Zelov, who represents Bryn Mawr on the Board of Commissioners. “On Bryn Mawr Day, the Township parking lot across Lancaster Avenue from Ludington Library is transformed into a Lower Merion town square, with something for everyone in the family to enjoy.”

Bryn Mawr Day would not be possible without the support of our dedicated sponsors. More than 30 businesses make financial or in-kind contributions to keep this event free of charge. Any additional funds remaining are used to enhance the business district with seasonal festivities and decorations, including the holiday snowflake installation lining the Avenue late in the year.

Spearheading the volunteers for Bryn Mawr Day is the Bryn Mawr Business Association. Local Boy Scout Troop 19 and the Bryn Mawr Rotary Club go above and beyond lending their time and assistance to make the day go smoothly. Additionally, the Bryn Mawr Fire Company, Bryn Mawr College, Bryn Mawr Beautiful, Travel Answers, Ludington Library, and Lower Merion Township all contribute resources to the day.

Presenting sponsors for Bryn Mawr Day include: Bryn Mawr Medical Specialists Association, The Baldwin School, Main Line Media News, Main Line Parent Magazine, and Friends’ Central School.

Susan Graham, Director of Bryn Mawr Day, is excited to lead the event this year. “I am overwhelmed by the participation and commitment of the community for Bryn Mawr Day,” she said. “The local businesses and schools look forward to highlighting Bryn Mawr and Rosemont each year and the momentum of this event continues to grow. We expect a large variety of vendors mixed with entertainment and food to please everyone.”
