Head to the 2nd Street Festival in Northern Liberties, August 7

Northern Liberties’ annual 2nd Street Festival will return on Sunday, August 7 and will span 2nd Street from Germantown to Spring Garden from 12 PM - 10 PM.

With over 150 craft vendors and 20 food trucks, the 8th year of this incredibly popular festival promises to be an amazing time as always, and founders Owen Kamihira (Bar Ferdinand and El Camino Real), Oron Daskal (North Bowl) and William Reed (Standard Tap) will work towards raising funds for the neighborhood, as they have for all of the previous festivals. In 2015, the festival raised $20,000 that went towards a business improvement district in Northern Liberties.

Events and vendors include food trucks like Dos Hermanos Taco Truck and The Cow and the Curd, performers like Nik Greeley & the Operators, and Standard Tap’s Sly Fox tap takeover, which will take place inside their restaurant, though they’ll also be selling Yuengling and Sly Fox cans outside along with two cocktails (Sailor Jerry’s Rum Punch & Hendrick’s Ginger Limeade).

Stop by the 2nd Street Festival on August 7 for great food, local vendors, and to celebrate the neighborhood while raising money for its development.
