One of Philly’s most popular block parties is back. Founded back in 2008, the 2nd Street Festival in Northern Liberties has quickly grown into one of the hottest events in the city. Spanning several blocks between Girard Ave and Spring Garden St., the festival features over 150 vendors, live music as well as parties happening all-weekend long.
