BEAST OF A FEAST
Guests at this annual party at Elmwood Park Zoo will indulge in the culinary excellence, with tastings from 20 Montco's best restaurants. Live music and animal encounters have also become cornerstones of this, one of Norristown's premier events.
FOURTH OF JULY
Norristown's July 4 celebration includes festivities for young and old. For the older crowd, the food trucks and beer garden at Elmwood Park open at 12 noon. For the children, the moon bounce, face painting and free activities start at 1 p.m. For the whole family, Elmwood Park Zoo is offering $4 admission all day, and the party closes with fireworks at dusk.
The only festival where you can share a beer with a bison, Tapped Philadelphia began hosting its event at the Elmwood Park Zoo in 2016. More than 100 of the Philadelphia region's best craft beers spread out across the zoo's 16 acres for the annual event.
NATIVE AMERICAN DAY
The annual Native American Day at Norristown Farm Park brings history to life with live demonstrations and displays of Lenape Indian culture. Best of all, the event is free.
