If you’re not already a devoted patron of Midtown Village’s many boutiques and restaurants, the Midtown Village Fall Festival is the perfect opportunity to become one. The neighborhood in Center City shuts down a few of its streets to traffic every October and opens them up to local vendors, entertainers, and, of course, Philly residents like you.
This year, the fall festival is slated for Saturday, October 5th from noon to 8 p.m. The section of 13th Street running through Midtown Village will host live bands, local food vendors, craft breweries, and more. One section of the festival will bring the Oktoberfest vibes, fittingly called the Bru Craft and Wurst Fall Fest. Head to the 1300 block of Chestnut Street to grab a brew, a bratwurst, and a pretzel with a side of live German tunes and dancing. Admission to the festival is free, and food and drink are pay-as-you-go.
