The South Street Spring Festival Needs Contestants to Compete in their Philly Taco Eating Contest, Who’s In!?

Eat, drink, shop, rock – and time warp! South Street Headhouse District presents South Street Spring Festival this Saturday, May 6, 2017, from 11:00am to 8:00pm. Philadelphia’s largest spring festival takes South (between Front and 8th) and Headhouse Plaza (between South and Lombard), plus connecting side streets.

Philadelphia’s largest – and tastiest – all-ages, all-day, free outdoor block party will have over 35 restaurant, bar and food vendors out on the street along South Street. For the true South Street foodies, enter the Philly Taco Contest and see how many pizza wrapped cheesesteaks you can eat. Maifest will also feature German fare and beers. Plus, new for 2017, Whetstone Tavern will host a new cider vineyard court.
Festivities will also include Philadelphia’s largest location for National Comic Book Day (at the 3rd Annual Atomic-Con). The South Street Sideshow Stage will feature the strange, unusual and unexpected. The grand finale (and new for 2017) is the gigantic Time Warp Dance performed in front of the Theatre of the Living Arts at 4th & South. As the lights of the festival go down, the party moves to the TLA where Transylvanian Nipple Productions will stage their live stage show with the Rocky Horror Picture Show. It’s just a jump to the left – and then a step to the right. Philadelphia here we go…as they say, “only on South Street!”
