Philadelphia

PIFA Goes out with a bang as it transforms Broad St into a Parisian Street Fair on April 30

Join PIFA as The Avenue of the Arts is transformed into a Parisian street fair with French street vendors and performers, a grass park with a children’s area, musical entertainment all day long, and a giant Ferris Wheel. Saturday, April 30, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., the stretch of South Broad Street from Chestnut to Lombard will be transformed into an all-out street celebration inspired by the allure of Paris. Between 80 and 100 vendors, craftsmen and exhibitors will fill the street while Philadelphians ride a genuine Ferris Wheel and enjoy a wide variety of performers and bands (there are two stages).

All culminating with a breathtaking routine by La Compagnie Transe Express performing 100 feet in the air.

Founded in 1982 by Brigitte Burdin and Gilles Rhode, who oversee the Artistic Direction, Transe Express create magical and imaginative large-scale shows in unconventional spaces. Their productions are unique adventures that transform cities and invite the public to escape their everyday reality.

PIFA has already been spectacular in it’s entirety, but Saturday is going to be a day to remember as Broad Street transforms into a Parisian Street Fair with mimes, roving street performers, over 100 vendors, craftsmen and exhibitors will provide entertainment throughout the day. Street Fair: Broad St closed 4/29, 30. Please plan enough time to arrive at this performance.
