2nd Street Festival

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

Sunday, July 31, 2011

noon – 10 pm

on the 700 to 1100 block of North 2nd Street

As part of the 50th Annual Philadelphia Folk Festival celebration, the Philadelphia Folksong Society will be partnering with the Northern Liberties community to produce the 3rd Annual 2nd Street Music Festival on Sunday, July 31, 2011.  The coming together of these two festivals will result in a 6-block long party that retains the raucous good time of last year’s food, beer gardens, vendors and music and incorporates folk musical acts, workshops and crafts curated by the Philadelphia Folk Festival.  An attendance of over 10,000 people is expected.

There will be 3 FREE stages throughout the day, a Rhythm and Roots stage (just south of George St), an Independent stage (at Poplar) and a Kids and Workshop stage (at Fairmount).  In addition, there will be music in the Piazza.
