Before it was West Chester, the town that now plays host to Heather Glen Apartments was known as Turks Head. It wasn’t exactly the bustling hub you live in today, either. It was merely a quaint country town about a day’s journey (by horse and buggy) from Philadelphia. A lot has changed in the past couple of centuries, but the Turks Head Music Festival pays homage to the town’s past in its name.

On Sunday, July 21st, the music festival will continue the legacy of rounding up the best local bands and solo acts for a day of entertainment, 11 performances in all. The fun begins at noon and runs until 8 p.m. at Everhart Park, and it’s free to attend. So bring your blanket or lawn chairs and hunker down for a day of concerts across two stages from performers like singer-songwriter Rob Dickenson, rapper and poet Andre Saunders, and alt-jazz band November Lounge. Check out the work of local artisans and other vendors in the marketplace throughout the day.
