Every 2nd Friday of the month, the West Reading shops and restaurants celebrate with “2nd Friday on the Avenue” hosted by the West Reading Community Revitalization Foundation (WRCRF).

2nd Friday on the Avenue is a time to celebrate and recognize our independent shops and locally owned restaurants! Join us Friday, April 9th. We are pleased to announce dining and bar restrictions have eased as of April 4th.

  • West Reading Restaurant Week continues through April 17th with $30 three course menus at 14 participating restaurants (dine in only). Follow @westrdgrestaurantweek for menus and more.
  • On Saturday, April 10th Gabi will offer Reiki, Reflexology & Raindrop Therapy at Betula’s Botanica, 412 Penn Avenue, West Reading. Call (484) 516-2321 to schedule.
  • On Saturday, April 10th from 1 – 5pm The Art Room WR, 633 Penn Ave will host a “Paint Your Own Stepping Stone” workshop. Please RSVP to [email protected] with your full name and phone number.

We will be adding additional events and promotions on our Facebook event page:

Our restaurants were pleased to welcome back indoor dining at 75% capacity in April. Support our local business owners, many also offer outdoor heated seating, delivery and takeout! West Reading may not be 100% open for business, but we are 100% committed to serving our community.

Please wear a mask and practice social distancing, if possible. Our merchants are following guidelines in line with advice from the CDC, State and Local officials. Our small business owners value your understanding in limiting in store visits and requiring masks to protect their personal safety as well as their family. Please call ahead to make appointments for our retail shops whenever possible, especially on weekends.

We invite the public to share their 2nd Friday adventures on our social media.
