Next Second Saturday Is January 9th! Don't miss it!
Last month kicked off the first East Passyunk Avenue Second Saturday event, which will be held from 6-9pm on the second Saturday of each month. What started as an effort by a few East Passyunk merchants to attract evening shoppers has grown to over 25 stores participating on a 5 block stretch of East Passyunk Avenue between Dickinson and McKean Streets.
Some shops have art openings, some have a DJ or live performances, some have complimentary food and wine, and some have sales or special demonstrations. Shops range from salons and specialty food stores to clothing and coffee shops. But they all have one thing in common – a dedication to keeping the Avenue open late.
“Second Saturday is an invitation to Philadelphians and visitors to come and see all that is new and all that is now available on East Passyunk Ave. This event has grown from just a few to over 25 participants, and its diversity in offerings makes it a worthwhile trip to the area. As the old saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child and this community is committed to making East Passyunk the best it can be,” said James McManaman of Absolute Abstract, a new store on EPA.
