If you’re looking for some fun block parties this summer, be sure to mark these Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, festivals down on your calendar. They’re guaranteed to be a blast!
The 2nd Street Festival | Blocks 600-1100 of North 2nd Street
Sunday, August 6th, 2017
At its core, every major Philly festival is about bringing the community together, and the 2nd Street Festival is no different. For the past seven years, it has proven to be one of the best crafts festivals in the city, drawing more residents each year.
Bringing together independent crafts vendors, live music, and food, all proceeds from the 2nd Street festival benefit the Northern Liberties Neighborhood Association. With your help, they’re looking to fund a bustling business improvement district. Come help this community grow!

Ain’t No Party Like a Philadelphia Party
In our day, we Philadelphians have been called many things—some of them grossly inaccurate. Still, we’d say the very best descriptor is spirited.
To put it simply, we know how to party here in Philly, and these three summer festivals are the perfect proof.
RSVP to each on Facebook to keep up with their evolving list of vendors!
