2nd Street Festival Takes Over Northern Liberties

2nd Street Festival will feature the largest footprint in the event's history, extending along N. 2nd Street from Spring Garden through Girard this year. The event will feature 200+ bands, DJs, restaurants, bars, breweries, distilleries, food trucks, artists, entertainers, makers, small businesses, musicians, and neighborhood shops.

For music fans, this is one of the largest outdoor festival music line-ups for a festival in Philadelphia since events returned after the pandemic shut down. There will be two main stages and music spots along the festival footprint. The all-day lineup will include two dozen live bands, DJs, drummers, and other entertainers. This is a great way to get back out there and support your local artists!

For foodies, this event will feature 50+ restaurants, bars, beer gardens, breweries, distilleries, and food trucks, including some of the biggest names in the city - and the newest restaurants that opened during the pandemic.

For shoppers and families, look for dozens of makers and artists organized by Art Star, plus family fun, photo ops, balloon art, splash zone, glitter tattoos, small business pop-ups, and so much more.

This event is organized by the 2nd Street Festival, with a portion of proceeds from the festival benefits programs and services through Northern Liberties Neighborhood Association (NLNA) and the Northern Liberties Business Improvement District (NLBID).
