Celebrations abound in the streets of Northern Liberties during the free 2nd Street Festival.

An annual August event, the Northern Liberties 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.

Guests will find plenty of food and drink vendors providing an array of eats and drinks and merchandise vendors selling crafts, clothes and more.
