PS I Love You

The Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County Presents “P.S. I Love You!” a ‘Behind the Scenes’ Tour of Perkasie and Sellersville

Visitors will learn about the area’s rich history, talented local artists and thriving new businesses

Perkasie and Sellersville are neighboring communities that have a rich history (dating back to the 1700’s), and are the homes to many talented local artists, art galleries, cultural attractions and thriving new businesses.

The primary goal of the tour is to bring visitors to Perkasie and Sellersville for a personalized look at this area’s “hidden gems,” according to Council President James Sell. “This will be an exciting opportunity to explore and learn about the cultural amenities in this often overlooked area,” said Sell. “Perkasie and Sellersville occupy a unique spot in the region’s history.”

Some stops on the tour include a visit to the 200-year old Washington House Hotel & Restaurant and the Sellersville Theater, a ride on Bucks County’s oldest carousel, and a peek at Perkasie Park’s 19th Century Victorian cottages.

Along the way, visitors will experience some of the up-and-coming businesses that are part of the Pennridge area’s economic revival, including the headquarters of Eric & Christopher (a nationally-known pillow company started by two Bucks County artists), and Chimayo Gallery.

The day will conclude with a tour of the Free Will Brewing Company, which is quickly becoming a household name among craft beer lovers up and down the East Coast. Participants will receive a ticket for a complimentary brew.

The tour will begin at 12noon. Tickets are $30, and will include light refreshments or food samples along the way (at the Carousel, the Washington House, the Bread Box & Bakery and at Chimayo Gallery.) Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.perkasierec.com/info/activities/
