Expect Traffic and Nantmeal Road Closure

In anticipation of large crowds and additional traffic, you may want to avoid the corner of Rte. 100 and Rte. 401. If possible complete as many errands as you can before Friday. West Vincent Police will close Nantmeal Rd. from just west of Griffith Hall (Fire Company) to Rte. 100 on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Traveling from Nantmeal Village to Rte. 100 use Horseshoe Trail Rd.

Drop Off Only at the Show Grounds

If you plan on attending the concert note that all parking is off site and no parking will be available on the show grounds. You may be dropped off on the grounds, so arrange for a friend, neighbor or your sitter to drop you off and pick you up after the performance.

If you have questions or comments about the Country Spirit USA Music Festival, please call 610 331-0432 or email info@countryspiritusa.com Do not call the Township as we have no additional information about the event.

Trash or Recycle: Video from Chester County Solid Waste

With technological advances, recycling has come a long way and we are recycling more items than ever before. If you are doing it correctly, you just might have more recycling than trash. When done correctly, recyclables have value but when done incorrectly they are nothing but trash. To know what to do, view a 2 ½ minute video FREE of charge at any time on your computer. The video was originally created for Chester County government buildings but applies to all households, businesses and institutions in Chester County because we all collect the same items.

Go to www.chestercountyswa.org and click on “Recycling” then “Single Stream Recycling Video”.  It is that simple.
