The Girard Avenue corridor is really coming around. New stores are setting up shop, new restaurants are serving delicious food, and many businesses are seeing the potential of this new commercial area.
Many of the shops along Girard are coming together this weekend to support the Girard Fest 2011. This event is in it's second year and it is a wonderful gathering of the surrounding neighborhoods and cultural groups to celebrate the diversity and revitalization of Girard Avenue The event will take place on Saturday, September 24th, from noon to 8 between the Northern Liberties and Fishtown neighborhoods on Girard between Front and 2nd Streets. This year's Girard Fest event will host eclectic multi-genre music booked by Philly F/M Fest, numerous artists and crafters, the city's best food vendors, family fun, and more!
