East Passyunk is Back…to Festivals and more
Philadelphia’s famous foodie street kicked off fall festival season with a giant new all-day, all-age, five block long music and food festival yesterday, Sunday September 10, 2023. East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District hosted the inaugural East Passyunk Music Festival, sponsored by Samuels Seafood, Giordano Garden Groceries, Penn Beer and WXPN, on Sunday, September 10, 2023, from 11:00am to 6:00pm. Guests enjoyed a full day of live music paired with award-winning food and seasonal sips all under the beautiful end of summer skies. Many wore their Eagles game day outfits, before heading home to watch the first win of the season.
Pam Zenzola, who was previously president of the Passyunk Square Civic Association, then was the organizations’ Executive Director , is now on the board of East Passyunk Ave BID, and was ecstatic that the neighborhood was able to return to hosting another successful, fun event for the neighborhood.

I’m not going to lie, I was disturb to later notice the background is in focus, and the bicycle handlebar mustache was not, ugh. Some photos ride to the occasion of ignoring that mistake.
