Fishtown District announces Fishtown Fall Feastivale on Saturday, September 24, 2022, from 12:00pm to 8:00pm, along Frankford Avenue, from Girard to Oxford. One of Philly’s red hot dining district will build upon the success of the former Fishtown FeastivALE with a new focus on all things delicious.
