Craft beer and wine will pour from the festival beer tent – and select restaurants will also offer seasonal cocktails, beer and wines for the crowds.
Free to attend and open to all ages. Food will be specially priced between $3.00 and $6.00 (average) and be pay-as-you-go from individual restaurants. Craft beer at the EPABID tent will be $5.00 each, and wine will be $7.00 a glass
Along with ample food and drink, Flavors will offer free family friendly activities – including a music zone, art zone and activity zone (at the Singing Fountain). Lume Studios, East Passyunk’s new community art center, is teaming up with the neighborhood’s resident toy store, Tildie’s Toy Box, to create these distinct kid-friendly zones for families to enjoy. Look for them scattered throughout the festival, making the perfect pit stops as parents enjoy all of the sights, sounds, and tastes of the event.
