Now in its ninth year, Fishtown District trades FestivALE for Festival - with a new name, new time of year, and a new focus on all things eats. The outdoor end-of-summer food festival and celebration will feature dozens of options, including burgers, brisket, Bavarian pretzels, gluten-free baked goods, vegan treats - and pickle boats. Pair all the amazing street food with Fishtown's favorite cocktails, beer, and cider.
On top of food, drink, and shopping, come ready to dance in the streets to music at three different DJ stages programmed by the Barbary, Johnny Brenda's, and Fishtown District itself. Music will run all day from 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm, with a line-up that so far includes DJ Pooh Geez and DJ Nate G.
Family fun will include a free performance by the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts Youth Troupe at 3:00 pm at Frankford and Oxford. Kids of all ages can also enjoy inflatable games, a prize booth, and other surprises in the kids' corner. The Lutheran Settlement House Dunk Tank will feature Fishtown "celebs" to ensure everyone has a swimmingly good time.
