Midtown Village Fall Festival
Midtown Village is made up of a collection of unique, independent, entrepreneurial, open-minded boutiques, restaurants, lofts and much more.
Held every autumn, the Midtown Village Fall Festival celebrates these independent businesses with one of Philadelphia’s premier outdoor events and attracts a whopping 50,000-plus attendees per year.
The festival takes place on 13th Street and across several surrounding blocks in Midtown Village and features live music and entertainment, food from area restaurants and offerings from a slew of vendors and crafters.
The annual Midtown Village Fall Festival runs on Saturday, October 6 from noon to 8 p.m. and covers Chestnut Street from Broad to 12th streets, Sansom Street from 13th to 12th streets, and 13th Street from Locust to Chestnut streets.
The festival features hours of tasty food, drinks, shopping, live entertainment and more.
As one of the city’s biggest festivals in early autumn, the annual Midtown Village Fall Festival attracts thousands of visitors in one day to experience a variety of activities including multiple stages of live entertainment, food and beverage sampling from area restaurants, merchant and vendor displays, crafters, children’s activities and more.

A fest within a fest, the Brü Craft and Wurst Fall Fest takes over the 1300 block of Chestnut Street with an all-day party full of craft drafts, bratwurst, knackwurst, pulled pork, pretzels and more.
The daylong celebration will also feature live music, DJs and, of course, dancing.
Variety is the name of the game at the 2018 Midtown Village Fall Festival. Attendees can check out more than 100 tents filled with wares and crafts from local boutiques and makers, plus five stages for live music and entertainment. The stages on Chestnut Street and Broad and 12th showcase live entertainment, while Brü, Finn McCool’s and Frankly Bradley’s host music stages. A DJ is stationed at Woody’s. This year’s festival also includes karaoke and a Kids Corner area.
Food and drink options abound! In addition to the 27 restaurants serving their tasty bites, guests can enjoy craft beer gardens and sample sips from Ketel One Botanicals, Maker’s Mark, Ole Smoky Moonshine and more.
As the neighborhood’s name suggests, Midtown Village is in the heart of Center City. With so many streets blocked off to vehicular traffic, we highly suggest festival-goers arrive by foot, bike or public transportation.
SEPTA‘s Market-Frankford line and Broad Street line both stop within blocks of Midtown Village. Visitors can ride to the City Hall, Walnut Street, 13th Street or 11th Street stops and walk over.
The event is free with pay-as-you-go food and drink.
