Lancaster Avenue To Host Its Next “Second Friday” Event August 10, A Night Of Art, Live Music And Shopping
This lively avenue in West Philly will host its August “Second Friday” event on August 10 from 5-8 p.m.
With an expanded ten blocks of vendors, artists and musicians, Lancaster Avenue gives you a great reason to get outdoors and celebrate the neighborhood.
In addition to the sidewalk sales and local vendors stationed along the avenue, expect local talent to also take to the streets and provide you with entertainment for the evening.
This month, the Community Education Center on 35th Street will be hosting their Summer Garden Series open mic night. Check out local talent or step up on the stage yourself! You can also catch live music at Make Your Mark on 39th Street (We hear Little Baby’s will be stationed there, too).
Flying Kite Art Gallery (4017 Lancaster Avenue) will once again feature a talented local artist. This month, check out the body of work from 2012 Drexel Graduate Emily Olson’s Senior Thesis.
The West Philly Fresh Food Hub will be stationed on 37th Street with seasonal recipe samples and fresh groceries.
Bonus: You can give back to the community, too. The People’s Emergency Center has extended their food drive at Villa (4036 Lancaster Avenue) through August 10 so come check out the awesome evening programs and bring some non-perishable food to donate.
