Hold off the Monday blues for as long as you can this Sunday, Aug, 3, with live entertainment, shopping and outdoor fun at the 2nd St. Festival in Northern Liberties. The festivities start at noon and will last until 10 p.m. so enjoy a little last hurrah before the workweek begins anew.

North 2nd Street will be closed off between Germantown & Green Streets, and there will be three music and events stages as well as plenty of workshops, art, food, and beer gardens to be enjoyed. Don't miss this rain-or-shine, free festival.
