Highlighting this month’s event is a book swap at the Old Library by Lake Afton from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, July 13. “July's theme is Staycationing in Yardley, and what better way to enjoy yourself at home than reading a good book,” said book swap organizers. Come find one or many books at the Swap.  If you're bringing books to the Swap, arrive with no more than one grocery bag of books of current interest for adults and/or children. 

YARDLEY BOROUGH >> Downtown Yardley will be hosting its next 2nd Saturday Yardley event on July 13 with a #YardleyStaycation theme, supported by a grant from Visit Bucks County.

Downtown Yardley businesses, Music on Main, the Yardley Historical Association, and Yardley Farmers Market will be sharing a variety of experiences, specials, and even chances to win great prizes from 8:30 a.m. to midnight.

Visitors and their families can pick up books and gifts, participate in an open mic performance or pilates class, see some amazing art while sampling some wine and cheese, listen to live music in four different venues, enjoy some treats and snacks, get served some summer-themed lunch, dinner, drink and dessert specials outdoors or inside, find some great deals on wellness and personal services, hair styling, and swimwear, and even find a sale on Yardley’s signature water ice, all within walking distance in the borough’s eclectic and vibrant downtown.

All told, participants can take advantage of an array of fun things to do, see, and win along with enjoying some #YardleyStaycation specials in some 15 different downtown business and organizations.

“You don’t have to fight shore traffic or pay for expensive lodging to enjoy a great local staycation in Yardley! From the Yardley Farmers Market, personal care and wellness activities, and sales and specials that start early in the day to summer reading books for swapping or purchase, to meal and drink and dessert specialties during the afternoon, to live music and art receptions right in town,” Jef Buehler, President of Experience Yardley said.

“Hopefully we’ll have a dry Saturday for Music on Main with De Tierra Caliente - thanks to Visit Bucks County, the first 200 people who arrive will receive a colorful floral lei to encourage the full #YardleyStaycation mood!”

Additionally, that night’s band sonsor Cramer’s Bakery, will be giving out “Bakery Bucks” coupons to attendees of the event.

The event is happening on July 13th from 8:30 AM to Midnight in downtown Yardley, with businesses and organizations hosting a variety of experiences at different times during the day. The full schedule of the #YardleyStaycation 2nd Saturday Yardley event can be found at 2ndSaturdayYardley on Facebook as well as on posters all over downtown Yardley.

“We love to engage with our community and be an active part of our downtown,” Taylor McFadden of The Spa on Main said. “Our contests are open to the public at large and of course our customers, but the real win is meeting new people and letting them see what we’re all about.”

2nd Saturday Yardley, run by the all-volunteer non-profit Experience Yardley organization, started in November 2017 and has occurred every month since then. See experienceyardley.com for the full roster of programs and activities for the year.
