The Philadelphia Live Arts Festival & Philly Fringe is a beloved yearly institution in this city. It has a devoted following, so much so that I’ve known people who plan their annual vacation time around it in order to be able to catch more shows, performances and exhibitions.
If you’re one of these Live Arts & Fringe fans, you should mark your calendar for a new fundraiser, spearheaded by local restaurateurs Stephen Starr, Michael Solomonov and Audrey Claire Taichman, taking place this fall to benefit the joint festivals.
Called the Feastival, this benefit will feature food from Philly’s top restaurants and performances from some of the most cutting edge artists around. The event will take place on Wednesday, September 15th at the Festival Hub in Northern Liberties. Tickets are $200 for general admission and $300 for VIP passes.
