To celebrate a decade of support for Philly’s booming arts scene, the epic party Audi Feastival is taking over the city’s most exciting outdoor arts space.

This year, the blowout will take place at Cherry Street Pier, the riverfront venue that hosts everything from artists’ studios to farmers’ markets, with more than 70 of Philly’s top bars and restaurants serving drinks and bites amongst interactive performance artists.

Feastival was founded by Audrey Claire Taichman 10 years ago, with this year’s event co-hosted by restaurant scene icons Michael Solomonov, Nick Elmi, and Stephen Starr. Funds raised at Feastival each year go to support the 1,000-plus arts performances at Philly’s annual Fringe Festival.

This year, internationally renowned choreographer Olaf Triebel will collaborate with Philly-based circus arts school Circadium, with 20 aerial performers and dozens of local artists working throughout the venue. No word yet on this year’s restaurants (or any potential themes) but you can take a look at the talent from 2018’s event here.

Feastival starts at 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 26th at Cherry Street Pier, 121 North Columbus Boulevard in Old City. Tickets are $300 for general admission and $450 for VIP, which gets you into the event an hour early.
