Odunde Festival

Media Title

Held the second Sunday of June for the past 37 years, this African-American street festival celebrating the coming of another year, continues to be one of the oldest and largest of its kind in the country. Each year, it attracts up to half a million people—more than any Eagles, Phillies, Flyers or Sixers game combined. As always, the event will begin with a procession to the Schuylkill River, where the goddess Osun will be presented with fruit, flowers and prayers. From there, the day of festivities will engulf a whopping 12 city blocks with two stages of nonstop live music and dance performances and more than 200 arts and crafts and food vendors. In the marketplace, attendees will find an eclectic mix of vendors selling items from various African nations as well as the Caribbean and Brazil. -Nicole Finkbiner
