9th Street Italian Market Festival

From Saturday, May 19, 2018 to Sunday, May 20, 2018 May 19, 2018 May 20, 2018 The Rittenhouse

South Philadelphia’s Italian Market is the nation’s oldest continuously operating outdoor market. What better way to celebrate its more than 100 years in existence than with a blockbuster street festival?

On May 19th, the already-bustling heart of South Philly will welcome over 70,000 visitors to the area for its annual 9th Street Italian Market Festival.

As one of the city’s most popular block parties, the entire neighborhood directs their attention towards the festival for the weekend. Tons of vendors and local businesses set up booths along 9th Street, which will be closed to traffic from Wharton to Federal streets.
