Mark your calendars. The seventh annual, six-block-stretching 2nd Street Festival in Northern Liberties will happen on August 2nd.

Taking place on (you guessed it) 2nd Street between Germantown and Green streets, the free festival celebrates it all—from music to drink to food to the arts—with more than 200 vendors.

There will be beer gardens and watering holes hosted by area bars like Cantina Dos Segundos, North Bowl and El Camino Real. Food Trucks will include Hai Street Kitchen, Smokin’ Taco’s, and Little Baby’s Ice Cream.

Local arts and clothing boutique Art Star has curated a pop up market that will sell clothing, jewelry, housewares, prints and more from places like Le Puppet Regime, Diamond Tooth Taxidermy, Stanley Chester + Albert, and Tough Luv Clothing.

Through it all there will be tunes playing all day thanks to local bands like Band of Rivals, Field Mouse, Northern Arms, and Tin Horses.

The festival takes place on Sunday, August 2nd from noon till 10 pm. For more information on the music lineup and the day’s activities, go here.
