In its 49th year the Brandywine Arts Festival in Wilmington, DE, is in deep doo-doo for not paying its bills. Reports say that the event organizers still owe the State of Delaware $8500 in usage fees for the use of Brandywine Park on the banks of the Brandywine River. The fur has been flying (they say). Organizers and parks administrators continue to feud. With the dates of the event coming up fast (September 12 & 13) unofficially it has been announced that the event will take place at St. Anthony in the Hills in Avondale, PA, in suburban Wilmington.

The long-established and popular event, drawing some 20,000 people, has been a fixture of autumn events for the region for almost half a century.
Will one of you follow up on this and let me know what is happening? Is it really moving to Avondale. Please investigate and comment below. Thanks.
