Bring your appetite to Taste of Philadelphia food festival at Penn's Landing

America’s birthday might be over, but the party doesn’t end just yet.

Satisfy your palette at the Taste of Philadelphia food festival, beginning Friday, July 5 at Penn’s Landing.

Enjoy gourmet goods from the city’s best food vendors, including The Cow & the Curd, La Marqueza Taco Truck and Brown Betty Dessert Boutique. Admission into this annual food festival is free, but tickets for food sampling will be available in a pay-as-you-go setting.

While you’re feasting on Philly’s best cuisine, dance to the many live performances during the festival, including a free concert from Marsha Ambrosius on Saturday, July 6. The concert will lead to a thrilling fireworks display by the Adventure Aquarium in Camden that will cap the last full day of the festival.

If you want to take the post-Fourth of July festivities across the Delaware, head over to the Camden Waterfront Freedom Festival.
