Our town offers plenty of summer fun, but sometimes the lure of Philadelphia beckons—and our new Summer in the City feature can help guide you to the fun.
If you feel like venturing out a little farther from home, check here for a weekly suggestion of something fun or interesting to do in the City of Brotherly Love. Whether it's restaurant to try, a festival to attend or special museum exhibits, we'll feature something different every Thursday.
This Sunday, head to the Northern Liberties area of Philadelphia for a street fair. From noon to 10 p.m., Second Street between Germantown and Fairmount Avenues will be closed to traffic so that beer gardens, food vendors, workshops and art vendors can set up shop.
The Philadelphia Folksong Society has programmed entertainment on four stages. The family-friendly Fairmount stage will feature kid's performers and workshops, including a puppet- and mask-making workshop. Then folk artists, DJs, and more will perform on the George, Poplar and Piazza stages. For a full list of performers for all the stages, check out the festival schedule.
Many local restaurants will be setting up beer gardens in the streets. Grab a drink from Bar Ferdinand, The Foodery, Cantina Dos Segundos and more. Bar specials and food menus will also be available.
So whether you're a young professional, a folk-music lover or a parent with little ones, the Third Annual 2nd Street Festival has something for everyone.
