Kensington Derby and Arts Festival
Time & Location
About the Event
For 14 years, the Kensington Derby & Arts Festival has drawn families, foodies, artists and inventors to Philadelphia for one of the city’s wackiest celebrations of local flavor. The event is part arts festival—with more than 100 vendors selling everything from food to handmade goods—and part parade of human-powered vehicles that wind along a three-mile urban obstacle course. Neighbors and new friends alike come out to experience the parade of sculptures and shop with artists and food vendors along Trenton Avenue, a wide cobblestone street that has been part of Kensington’s rich creative history for over a hundred years.
This event is held rain or shine and is free to attend, so mark those calendars!
