Festival Executive Director Meredith Williams says:
“The festival celebrates the community that hosts the festival, Northern Liberties. Funds from the festival go to support the efforts of the NLNA to help create a clean and safe community with the neighbors that live there. The festival also contributed to the creation of the Northern Liberties BID. Now that the organization is up and running, the funds will go toward hosting the monthly 2nd Saturday’s. These regular celebrations highlight the businesses in the neighborhood, as well as the artists and performers that call this area home with special pop-up music acts, circus performers and sidewalk art installations, to name a few of the special features.”
