STREAT FOOD FESTIVAL

Manayunk will be hosting the StrEAT Food Festival to kick-off the neighborhood’s Restaurant Week. More than 40 of the city’s best food trucks are set to line up on Main Street (rain or shine) for all-day feasting on the cheap. Specialties will range from ice cream and crepes to tacos and burgers, and the spotlight is on a fall favorite, apples! Plus, kids can enjoy a new zone dedicated just to them, Recess, while adults can imbibe at the festival’s first-ever beer garden. Finally, Main Street businesses will be open so that visitors can eat, shop, listen to live music and even enjoy yoga classes while exploring this vibrant hamlet.
