Celebrate in the streets of Northern Liberties during the free 2nd Street Festival on Sunday, August 6.

An annual August event, the 2nd Street Festival draws thousands of people to pack a six-block stretch of North 2nd Street between Germantown Avenue and Spring Garden Street. All afternoon and into the night, a Philly-centric lineup of live bands play across three stages. In the middle of the festival, a dedicated space for street performers will bring additional entertainment.

Expect to find plenty of food and drink vendors, too, provide an array of eats and drinks and merchandise vendors selling crafts, clothes and more.

The Layout

A huge street party, the festival shuts down six full blocks of North 2nd Street between Germantown Avenue and Green Street.

Instead of the usual cars and parking spots, you’ll find the street filled with art, food trucks and other vendors. Local stores and restaurants will also open up their doors.

Festival-goers can also find four music and entertainment stages hosting local bands at set times throughout the event. One stage will be set up on Germantown Avenue, Brown Street will host a second stage and the Schmidt’s Commons will hold the third. There will also be a stage for street performers at Poplar Street.

More than 20,000 people are expected to attend the fest throughout the day, so be prepared.
