Long Fall Holiday Weekend = Festivals, Festivals & More Festivals!

Posted by Admin PhillyLiving on Friday, October 5th, 2018 at 3:21pm.

It’s Columbus Day weekend, so for some that means a long weekend & are in search of stuff to do; don’t worry we’ve got a great line up below!

Last chance! Tonight ends the ever popular Center City Restaurant Week so get out & enjoy your 3-course dinner for just $35! Here’s the full list of participating restaurants. Bon appetite!

It’s the season for festivals, especially Oktoberfest! This weekend alone there are 4 different fests to choose from: Roxtober Fest, Narberth Oktoberfest, KOP Beerfest Royale plus the 23rd Street Armory Oktoberfest by Brauhaus Schmitz. Each year they deck out the Armory in blue and white for a traditional Oktoberfest feel. With pints of beer, and German-inspired food this event brings in many Germans as well as folks adopting the culture to celebrate! It is a ticketed event so check out the site in order to learn more or to reserve your spot.

High Harvest Biergarten kicked off its first full week of operation on Wednesday on Frankford Avenue in Fishtown. There are many beers on tap as well as canned drinks as well plus light snacks as well, so if you’re looking to get into the fall spirit and enjoy a few drinks outside, check out the Biergarten this weekend.

THE GLOW: A Jack O’Lantern Experience is back at  West Fairmount Park! More than 5,000 hand-carved pumpkins illuminate a trail throughout the park. Expect to come upon some local attractions carved from pumpkins plus many glowing displays to light up the night! It’s going on now through October 28th and nothing gets you in the autumn spirit more than pumpkins & a chill evening walk through West Fairmount Park.

Can you believe Terror Behind the Walls is one of the top Halloween attractions in the country? The creators of Terror Behind the Walls do a phenomenal job of utilizing the old prison to bring their vision to life! For more details or to purchase tickets check out their website here.

Midtown Village Fall Festival is back tomorrow on 13th Street with food, drinks, live music, games, sidewalk sales and more! It’s not just an outdoor festival however, Brü Craft and Wurst is hosting its own event with tons of beer, games and music.

It’s time for the Please Touch Museum’s annual Birthday Bash! Happening this Sunday the event is all about what makes birthdays special. And we hear there is a new mascot for the museum with a guest appearance this Sunday.

This is always one of our favorite’s, Old City Fest.  We’re not sure if its the allure of this part of town, or the time of year this falls, but somehow this always tops our list. Many restaurants offer alfresco eats & drinks during the festival and since it’s typically on the cooler side, this is a nice break from the heat the past few months. Participating restaurants this year include Buddakan, Franklin Fountain & many more…

It’s a tough decision this year, Old City Fest, or get to the Linc early for some tailgating before the big rematch of the NFC championship from last season. The Vikings are in town for a 4:25 kickoff and it’s sure to be a good game; one that the Eagles need to secure.
