A Fair to Remember

A giant Ferris wheel, street performers, a public garden, over 40 food vendors, two stages with memorable musical performances and a trampoline, as you have never seen it before, all have one thing in common – the PIFA Street Fair.

From 11 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. on April 30, Broad Street (from Chestnut to Lombard Streets) will be closed to traffic in order to recreate the wonders of a Parisian street fair.

Whether you decide to spend all day in the last days of Paris, or only go for a few hours it will be the place to see and be seen. It is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the wonders of Paris at a fraction of the price it takes to fly there – Free.

Two stages will be set up at Pine and Sansom Streets as the platform for all musical entertainment. Featured artists include:

  • Wyllys & the New York Hustler Ensemble
  • Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings
  • Rupa & the April Fishes
  • Watcha Clan…and many more!

This day-long event will culminate with a performance circus magic by La Compagnie Transe Expresse 100 feet in the air.
