Fishtown’s Largest Street Festival, Fall Feastivale is Back With 125+ Restaurants, Live Music, DJs, and More

Fishtown’s largest street festival and block party is back – and bigger than ever! Fishtown District, with support from Penn Treaty Special Services District, presents Fishtown Fall Feastivale on Saturday, September 23rd from 12:00pm to 8:00pm, on Frankford Avenue, from Girard to Palmer.

The all day, all ages block party will feature outdoor food and drink, DJs and music, family fun and carnival games, charity celebrity dunk tank, artists and makers, vendors and community groups, and much more.

Many of the neighborhood’s hottest eateries will also be serving up including  Alamodak, Bottle Bar East, Cheu Noodle Bar, Evil Genius Beer Co., Fette Sau, Fiore Fine Foods, Fishtown Pickle Project, Frankford Hall, Frankford Tiki Bar, Front St. Cafe, Heffe Tacos, Interstate Drafthouse, Johnny Brenda’s, La Colombe, LMNO, Philadelphia Brewing Co., Sancho Pistolas, Two Robbers, WM Mulherin’s Sons, Wokworks and many more. Frankford Hall will host a special block party in the festival footprint for Oktoberfest, with authentic oompah music, kids’ crafts, balloon artist, face painters and more. Fishtown Fall Feastivale is free to attend, with food and drink pay as you go. The event is family and fido friendly, with 21 and up to drink (with identification).

“Fishtown District has become a top destination for foodies city-wide,” said Fishtown District Director of Operations Kae Anderson. ” Fishtown Fall Feastivale is the perfect way to eat your way down Frankford Avenue. It is our biggest line-up of restaurants and bars ever. Come find your favorites, or try something new and different. There’s going to be something for everyone!”

She added, “After the success of last year’s event and moving to fall, we have expanded the footprint to be our largest ever – extending all the way from Girard to Palmer this year.”

Fishtown Fall Feastivale is now in its 10th year. The event started in 2013 during Philly Beer Week as Fishtown FestivALE with a focus on the neighborhood’s award-winning beer scene. In 2022, the festival moved to fall with a new name, new date and a new expanded focus on all things food (and drink).  The outdoor end-of-summer food festival will feature over 30 food and drink options, including everything from burgers to brisket, Bavarian pretzels to bratwurst, cheesesteaks to veggie sausage, baked goods to local pickles – and everything in between.


Come hungry and thirsty for the best food in the city, paired with the best seasonal sips and award-winning Fishtown-made beers. The growing line-up includes so far:

Bottle Bar East
