ART/GAGE returns for Night Market on South Street

ART/GAGE and The Food Trust join forces for a very special Night Market event, including cultural events at Philadelphia Magic Gardens on Thursday, August 15.

The event will shine a spotlight on live music, art demonstrations, dance and other fun activities for attendees to be engaged in while they peruse the Night Market food festival grounds.

The celebration will span from Front to 9th Streets on South Street to accommodate the Night Market’s signature food and drink vendors, as well as ART/GAGE’s locally sourced artists, extraordinary performances, and community organizations. This special combination is expected to culminate as the largest Night Market yet, with over 80 food and drink vendors participating. Previous Night Market events have attracted up to 25,000 people.

Live performances from a diverse line-up of Philly based acts include Norwegian Arms, Night Panther, Circadian Rhythms, Strand of Oaks, Casey Alvarez, New Pony, The Late Ancients, Happy Accident and many more at the Ninth Street Stage.

There will also be many art experience scattered throughout the grounds like live mosaic lessons, sugar sculptures by Sarah Whitt, body painted models, street performers and much more.

During the festival, Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens–located at 1020 South Street–will also offer guided mini-tours, cool beverages, and hands-on tile activities in its glittering mosaicked space. Special mini-tours will take place every half-hour and give a “taste of the gardens,” providing visitors with behind-the-scenes access and great tidbits on the founding artist Isaiah Zagar.

Thursday, August 15 from 6 - 10 pm
Front to 9th Streets along South Street
