“2nd Street Festival is back and bigger than ever in Northern Liberties," said Ann Lastuvka of Virginia Belle Events, the Executive Producer for 2nd St Festival. “One of Philadelphia's largest and greatest summer traditions returns with the largest footprint in our history, plus tons of new programs and vendors this year. We have been working for months and months to bring back this beloved event, and we can't wait to see everyone back on N. 2nd Street this summer!"
“When we started this festival, we just wanted to celebrate our neighborhood and have fun doing it. It’s amazing how much interest it draws now and how much life it brings to 2nd Street,” said Oron Daskal, co-founder of the festival and owner of North Bowl and South Bowl. "The event is important to bring attention to our neighborhood, but it also raises money for our neighborhood organizations for the services they provide for our residents and businesses."
For the return of the 2nd Street Festival, look for a new larger footprint, new restaurants, food trucks, and small businesses, a new splash zone, and even more beer gardens - combined with all the same good summer street vibes you have come to know and love over the last 13 years.
