Now that the Spring Equinox has past and the last of the snow is melting, it’s finally time to get out of the house! One of the great things about living in Philadelphia is the ever-growing food scene. The Cradle of Independence, as NY Daily News put it Philadelphia has “birthed one of the most exciting indie restaurant scenes in the country.”
To say that we at Breslow Partners are foodies would be an understatement. Not only is food part of our job, it runs our world. Combine the ultimate love of all things culinary with extended winter cabin fever, and here is our bucket list of Food Festivals to take part in this Spring.
In only its second year, Philly Wine Week has had great success. With double the participants of last year (now totaling more than 35!), enjoy 8 days of events that will “grab you by the taste buds.” With participants such as Vetri, Osteria and the obvious Tria Wine Bar, we are excited to see what the great food minds will be featuring.
For a chance to get away from Center City, Manayunk StrEAT is the perfect weekend activity in April. Rain or shine, come check out Manayunk Main Street on Sunday, April 12, 2015 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. In addition to over 40 vendors, and strawberry-themed specials, this is the first year that they will be opening a beer garden!
And if you can’t get enough of those Manayunk eateries, be sure to check our their two-weeklong Restaurant Week featuring a prix fixe, three-course menu during lunch and dinner.
This Spring Festival is one of the most popular attracting over 50,000 people each year. Walnut Street will be converted into a six-block showcase of local businesses in Rittenhouse Square. Food, drink, fashion and music – what more could you ask for?
Philadelphia is home to the nation’s oldest operating outdoor market, and this year is its 100-year anniversary, or the Cent’Anni. The celebration will take place rain or shine between 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Including the participation of Italian Market vendors, they will be providing events such as the Procession of Saints, a Halfball Tournament, and contests.
