From noon – 4 p.m., you’ll be able to experience Philly’s vibrant Asian culture in an open-air market with exceptional entertainment, Asian cuisine, crafts and more.

Chinatown has been a part of Philadelphia since the 1870s and 80s, starting as a society of bachelor sojourners and developing into a thriving community of diverse Asian cultures, community organizations, churches and restaurants.

For more history on Chinatown, visit the Historical Society of Pennsylvania or Philadelphia Chinatown.
