Over 100 vendors will line the Avenue, including 80+ artists and makers curated by Nice Things Handmade. Family fun will include balloons, bounce house, arts and crafts, games and more. The festivities will run along East Passyunk, from Broad to Dicknson streets. The event is open to all ages. Food and drink is pay-as-you-go.

“Flavors on the Avenue started back in 2007 and has grown to become one of the most popular outdoor food festivals in Philadelphia,” said EPABID Board President Michelle Gillen-Doobrajh, who is also the owner of Tildie’s Toy Box and Tiny Tildie’s. “Flavors is the Avenue’s invitation for people from across the region to share our love of food. It is a time to come together and celebrate the top chefs and restaurants that make East Passyunk one of the top food destinations in America. It is also the chance to explore our fast growing retail scene, while supporting local small businesses. Come for the food and the drink, but stay for the music, the community, the activities and the shopping. Make it a day with us on East Passyunk.”
