Celebrate in the streets of Northern Liberties during the annual 2nd Street Festival.

Every August, thousands pack a seven-block stretch of North 2nd Street between Germantown Avenue and Spring Garden for a day of music, food, beer gardens, art, workshops and vendors of all kinds.

The massive block party features four stages of live music hand-selected by the Philadelphia Folksong Society, who also plan the long-running Philadelphia Folk Festival. Past year’s performers have included: Man Man, The Great Unknown, The Spinning Leaves, Blayer Poindujour & The Rockers Galorre, Auctioneer and many more.

Grab a bite to eat from one of the many food trucks expected at the Festival and refresh with a drink at a variety of beer gardens set up along the street. Local restaurants like Standard Tap, North Bowl and El Camino Real will also open their doors for the day-long celebration.

The super-sized block party also features family friendly activities including arts and crafts, carnival games and kid-friendly musicians.
