Organizer Timo Kargus said the move makes sense for business.

“Due to the reconstruction of LOVE Park we are moving to City Hall, so we are going right into the center of the city this year.”

Kargus said they’re excited to have their 80 merchants in the heart of the Center City shopping district and they hope even more people will check out the variety of international items available.
