Street Fare, the fresh new brand for the popular Mt. Airy Night Market, invites people to come out and sample tasty bites and beverages from gourmet food trucks and local restaurants along Germantown Avenue on Sept. 19 from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Now in its third year, the event will stretch along Germantown Avenue between Sedgwick Street and W. Mt. Airy Avenue. Street Fare, hosted by Mt. Airy USA, will spotlight more than 40 food trucks and restaurants serving the city’s best gourmet street eats, craft-brewed beer, wine and cocktails.

The event will also feature local crafters selling cool creations and, as always, live entertainment. Street Fare is the perfect opportunity to sip delicious beverages, savor amazing food from the city’s favorite food vendors and local restaurants, and stroll along historic Germantown Avenue.

“For the past two years, Mt. Airy and the greater Philadelphia have really come out to support our street festivals in a tremendous way,” said Anuj Gupta, Mt. Airy USA’s executive director. “We are looking forward to another exciting, family-friendly evening that showcases Mt. Airy’s growing and vibrant restaurant scene to our broader region.”

Elizabeth Moselle, director of Commercial Corridor Revitalization and the Business Association of Mt. Airy added, “We are excited to bring Street Fare to Mt. Airy this fall. By bringing the best food trucks and carts city-wide to the neighborhood, we not only get to expose locals to a variety of delicious food from throughout the region, we get to introduce up and coming businesses to Mt. Airy. It’s both a fabulous street festival and a celebration of the continued revitalization of Germantown Avenue, something a lot of people have worked really hard for.”

This year, event entertainment will be spread throughout the event in two locations, adding to the festive atmosphere. Stay tuned for more details. Mt.
