This Saturday, December 14, the sidewalks and storefronts of the South Street Headhouse District will brim with holiday cheer — both nice and a bit naughty.

From 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., the neighborhood hosts its first Christmas Village under the Headhouse Square Shambles.

Curated by the folks of PHAIR, an Philly-focused open-air market, the holiday bazaar brings in 30 crafters and artisans to peddle handmade wares throughout the day.

Plus, families can enjoy a visit from Santa Claus from 1 to 3 p.m. (bring those wish lists!), holiday photos at Posey Booth, and warming food and drink from Brauhaus Schmitz. For the complete vendor lineup and schedule, check here.

After the sun goes down, the jolly good times of the annual Santa’s South Street Stumble take over the neighborhood from 6 p.m. to midnight.

Starting at Bainbridge Street Barrel House and making merry all the way down South Street to Woolly Mammoth, participants can pick up a $5 South Street Headhouse District Santa hat at any stop on the stumble to enjoy holiday beer and cocktail specials at 13 participating bars and restaurants.

For the complete lineup of bars, check here.

And remember, metered parking is free on Saturdays after 11 a.m.!
