To Do: Frankford Fall Music & Arts Fest

We often talk about events happening along the Fishtown section of Frankford Avenue, known as the Frankford Arts Corridor, but if you head further north on Frankford Avenue this fall, you're in for some musical treats. The Frankford Fall Music & Arts Festival is a new event this year, and will take place this Saturday, November 10th at St. Mark's Church on 4442 Frankford Avenue in Frankford, proper.  The all ages fest, brought to you by Flying Kite's On the Ground Program, will include a rockin' lineup with some local favorites (including  Betty Iron ThumbsBueno and the Goods, and Rock to the Future). Food trucks, beer, and an arts exhibition round it out.

Get your tickets here and make the trip to Frankford this weekend!
