East Passyunk Avenue’s popular Flavors of the Avenue festival gets a makeover this year and returns as Flavors on the Avenue. In previous years, the main event has been a ticketed festival, but this year, the spring food festival is free and takes place along five blocks of East Passyunk Avenue.

Guests can expect all of the great food and drink samples from the avenue’s restaurants, but this year, all food and drinks will be available on a pay-as-you-go basis.
A “Flavors Taste” VIP ticket book is available for $50, which includes a dish from every participating restaurant, two glasses of beer or wine (must be 21) and a free valet parking voucher.
The festival runs from noon to 5 p.m. this Sunday, April 30.
Our guide to the festival, below.
For the first time ever, Flavors on the Avenue will fill five blocks with tons of food and drink samples, live music, kids’ activities and more.
The festival runs along East Passyunk Avenue from Broad Street to Dickinson Street. That’s five full blocks!
While the focus of the festival is the food and drink of the neighborhood, designated sections of the festival footprint will welcome everything from an art and activity zone at the Singing Fountain to a craft show presented by the Philadelphia Museum of Art at the Gateway at East Passyunk Avenue and Broad Street.
Food and Drink
This year, 27 restaurants (a record for this festival!) will serve up delicious food and drink samples all along the avenue. Festival guests can indulge in everything from classic American fare to cuisine from faraway places like France, Malaysia, the Philippines, Italy, Mexico and more.
The full festival food and drink menu is available online, but guests of this Sunday’s event can expect pork buns from Bing Bing Dim Sum, Dutch meatballs from Noord, pizza from Marra’s, chocolate egg cream pudding pops from Laurel, chicken saté from Saté Kampar, crepes from Will BYOB, tacos from Cantina los Caballitos and more.
As for drinks, select restaurants will serve beer, wine and cocktails. (Don’t miss the cucumber margaritas from Cantina los Caballitos or the citrus cocktails at Townsend.) Attendees can also visit an expansive beer tent at 1628 East Passyunk Avenue and purchase beer ($5 a glass) and wine ($7 a glass).
Access to the multi-block festival is completely free; festival attendees simply have to pay for food and drinks on a pay-as-you-go basis. Individual dishes will be available for purchase for $3 to $6.
