The organizers of the 2nd Street Festival announce the second, fall edition of the new Northern Liberties Night Market Series.
On Thursday, September 22, 2022, the Fall 2022 Edition of the Northern Liberties Night Market will commence on N. 2nd Street between Fairmount and W. Laurel streets from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm. The Fall Edition of this pop-up festival is thanks to the organizers of the massively well-received 2nd Street Festival.
“We are thrilled to bring these new open-air food festivals to our neighborhood in Northern Liberties. For some time, the 2nd Street Festival had been brainstorming ways to expand from just an annual festival into a year-round series of events. When the Food Trust announced the end of their popular Night Market series, 2nd St Festival saw this as the perfect opportunity to carry the torch of a tradition many Philadelphians hold near and dear to their hearts. That event was always designed to help set-up neighborhoods for success as the event continued to pop-up around the city, with the Mt. Airy Street Fare as a great example of the Food Trust’s work in that area. We originally intended to launch something new in spring of 2020, but COVID had other plans. After two years on hiatus, 2nd St Festival is bursting at the seams to bring people back to Northern Liberties for fun and festivities. We had a great return with tens of thousands of people this summer – and we are back with Night Market in fall. See you on N. 2nd Street this September!” – El Camino Real’s Owen Kamihira, President of 2nd Street Festival Corp.
Come to the Northern Liberties Night Market for a free evening of food, drinks, music and fun! With dozens of food trucks, vendors selling wares ranging from clothes to jewelry, and street performers, there’s sure to be something for everyone.
The festival will have multiple DJs, and Snack Time Philly will be performing in the North Bowl parking lot. There will also be a Funk ‘n Bowl after party at North Bowl.
“When we started the 2nd Street 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.” – Oron Daskal, North Bowl.
Food and drinks will be provided by 3 Roosters, Angie’s Vietnamese Cuisine, Bake ‘n Bacon, Standard Tap, El Camino Real, Urban Village Brewing Co., Bourbon and Branch, Spuntino Wood Fired Pizzeria, and many more.
