Old City Fest Rocks Historic Philly Neighborhood

Old City Fest

‘Food, Art, Live Music… Oh My!’ 

What would William Penn say about Old City’s Old City Fest? “Bring It! I just wish I could party in this awesome historical section of Philly with my friends on Sunday, October 8!”

No worries William, because this festival certainly looks like a great time for all ages. 

The Old City Fest is a celebration of art and design, fashion and food, creativity and culture on the streets of America’s most historic square mile and will transform a four block area - Arch Street between 2nd and 4th streets and 3rd Street between Race and Market streets – from 11 am to 6 pm.

The free street festival highlights the region’s premier art and design district; showcasing local designers, creative firms, restaurants, retailers, top-notch art galleries, theater, culture, history and architecture.

Visitors will enjoy a wide selection of food and beverages from local restaurants, a festival stage with live music and performances, a design showcase installation, pop-up street performances, kids zone and art, craft and retail shopping.

As you walk around this vibrant neighborhood, you’ll experience and appreciate the neighborhood’s culture, history and architecture.

The Old City Fest lineup includes such vendors as: Sassafras, Amada, Scout Vintage, Smak Parlour, Continental, Franklin Fountain, Betsy Ross House, The Center for Art in Wood, The Clay Studio, Panorama and many more.
