Old City Fall Festival

Tags: , ,

This Sunday, October 11th from noon to 6 p.m Old City will transform from quiet cobblestone thoroughfares into alfresco eating-and-entertainment meccas for Old City Fest!

During that time a four-plus block area, Arch Street between 2nd and 4th streets and 3rd Street between Race and Market streets, will be closed to showcase local designers, creative firms, restaurants, retailers, galleries and theaters, as well as the neighborhood’s culture, history and architecture!

Festivalgoers will be able to enjoy live music and performances, a design showcase room, pop-up theatrical performances, plus a wide array of food, beverages and retail shopping.

This free street festival runs in conjunction with DesignPhiladelphia’s 10th anniversary year, and serves as a marquee event of the art-focused citywide series.
