Mt. Airy will come alive tonight, August 16 as Night Market Philadelphia returns to the 68th through 72nd blocks of Germantown Avenue.
After last summer’s super successful Mt. Airy edition of Night Market, the Food Trust (the organizers behind the event) decided to bring it back.
From 6-10:30 p.m. you’ll be able to dish on street eats from more than 50 food trucks and restaurants.
Look for Yards brews, Penns Woods wines, cocktails made with Philadelphia Distilling spirits plus live music from Grammy-nominated soul artist Ryan Shaw, Ginger Coyle and Reckless Amateurs, all presented by WXPN. And there will be a local crafts component, more so than in any other Night Market past.
It’s going to be a great time in a great neighborhood presented by a great organization.
Admission is free, but you can also purchase a Friends of Mt. Airy Night Market Pass which gets you a reserved seat all night at Lovett Park (Germantown and Sedgwick) and free drinks provided by Yards Brewery, Philadelphia Distilling and Penns Woods Winery. That $35 contribution supports programming from Mt. Airy USA and The Food Trust.

When: Thursday, August 16, 6-10:30 p.m.
