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, July 8th in West Reading!

July 8th 2nd Friday events and promotions include:

  • Live music returns at 6th and Penn Avenues, 6-8pm with Mr. Nice Guy, a solo acoustic act incorporating Classic & Modern Rock, Reggae, Hip-Hop and Original Music into each performance. Bring a chair, beverage and takeout from your favorite West Reading restaurant and get your toes tapping!
  • Art Plus Gallery, 604 Penn Avenue, will host an Opening Reception featuring Plein Air West Reading (PAWR) artworks Friday from 5-8pm. View and purchase the paintings created during the PAWR event in June.
  • Join Fleet Feet, 705 Penn Avenue, for a run to get your day started! The group starts at 6:30am and runs a 3-5 mile loop through the Wyomissing Park system. Feel free to stick around the store afterwards for some Dosie Dough Donuts and coffee before you head off to work! All paces are welcome.
  • Join Hot Yoga West Reading for Moving Mediation with support of the Borough of West Reading at the West Reading Pavillon, 501 Sycamore Road. This open air, donation only event is for ages 18+. Cultivate mindfulness, community and kindness every Friday from 7:30 – 8:45am!
