Philadelphia’s festival season kicks into gear with the second annual South Street Headhouse Spring Festival. Held on South Street, between Front and 8th Streets, the fantastic outdoor celebration is a pedestrian paradise of food, music and fun from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m..
The massive street party features more than 90 vendors offering delicious food, arts and crafts and family-friendly activities. More than 40 bands performing on three stages and designated areas along South Street will provide the soundtrack for the spring day celebration.
Browse the various stores along South Street and enjoy dishes and refreshments from more than 30 neighborhood restaurants, bars and cafes. Bring cash and a healthy appetite as you won’t want to miss the delicacies from local favorites like Pizzeria Stella, The Twisted Tail and Hot Diggity.

Coinciding with the South Street Headhouse Spring Festival, the annual Maifest Street Festival at Brauhaus Schmitz is a day of beer, brats and German-themed merriment. Brauhaus transforms the 700 block of South Street for the festival with alfresco seating and giant steins of cold beer.
