PECO Sponsors 2nd Annual Norristown Arts Festival

Norristown, PA:  PECO Energy has made a $5,000 grant to support the second annual Norristown Arts Hill Festival. 

"PECO’s great show of support is truly appreciated. Their contribution significantly helps to meet the needs of producing a large scale event such as this," says Richard W. Rogers, Jr., Norristown Arts Council President/Festival Logistics Chairman.

The Norristown Arts Hill Festival will be held on Saturday May 7th, from 10 am to 5 pm, at Main and DeKalb Streets in Norristown.  Last year’s Festival drew over 2,000 visitors and featured 30 performers.  The Festival is located on “Arts Hill”, a section of Norristown that includes the Montgomery County Cultural Center, Theater Horizon, Iron Age Theatre, Centre Theater, and the Project Twenty1 film studio. 

“We believe Arts Hill will be a destination for artists, businesses and consumers,” says Gene Frank, Festival Coordinator. He continues, “Countless members of the community are giving their time, energy and money to help make this vision a reality.  We’re excited that PECO has chosen to participate in such a big way.”

“Arts and culture organizations have an economic impact of more than $1 billion on our local economy,” said Suzanne Ryan, PECO’s Montgomery County External Affairs manager.  “Through PECO-sponsored programs we help people of all ages and backgrounds enjoy and experience the arts throughout our region.”
