PFCU Kensington Derby & Arts Festival

What’s creative and delicious and covered in mud? The PFCU Kensington Derby & Arts Festival on May 9!

For 14 years the Derby and Arts Festival has drawn families, foodies, artists and inventors to Philadelphia for one of the city’s wackiest celebrations of local flavor.

The event is part arts festival—with more than 100 vendors selling everything from food to handmade goods—and part parade of human-powered vehicles that wind along a three-mile urban obstacle course.

The whole thing is put together by two neighborhood nonprofits–New Kensington Community Development Corporation (NKCDC) and the East Kensington Neighbors Association (EKNA)—with Philadelphia Federal Credit Union (PFCU) as title sponsor.
