2nd St. Festival!

July is coming to a close, but there is one last event that will surely make the last month of the summer a memorable one. And that is the annual 2nd St. Festival in Northern Liberties held on July 31st. The festival was founded by Owen Kamihira, owner of Bar Ferdinand and El Camino Real; Oron Daskal, owner of North Bowl, and William Reed, owner of Standard Tap and Johnny Brenda’s. These are just a few of the many restaurants, boutiques, bars, and vendors that will be participating in this 6-block party!

This year the founders of the 2nd St. Festival have teamed up with the Philadelphia Folksong Society to put on what promises to be quite the shindig! There will be FOUR all-day stages set at the 2nd St. intersections at Poplar, George, and Fairmount and one in the Piazza. They promise music that should satisfy any taste- from grassroots to R&B! 

The line up includes: 

tUnE-YarDs - Black Landlord - Delicate Steve - East Hundred-Kala Jojo-Toy Soldiers - Boris Garcia - The Great Unknown - Mason Porter - Cheers Elephant – Res - DJ Frosty - David April - Wes Mattheu and the New Way Down - Banned Books - Painted Blue – Gillian Grassie - North Lawrence Midnight Singers-  Nicole Zell and Em Sea Water

Additionally, the Fairmount stage will cater to the little ones with performances & workshops by:
Cat's Pajamas - Philly School of Rock - Krista Parrish - Electric Man

Visit the Arcadia booth, we will be handing out 15% off coupons all day! The coupons are redeemable the day of and at both locations. We have awesome markdowns on Spring and Summer merchandise as well as some great new Fall merchandise! It's a great way to take a break between shows and wandering in the heat! Plus, we will be serving up Sangrias for  your refreshment ;) 

With Love, 
The Arcadia gals.
