9th Street Italian Market Festival

Mango on a stick, fresh-popped kettle corn, Jerry Blavat, accordion players, grease pole climbing contests and bouncy houses next to cheesesteak vendors. You won't find this lineup anywhere but South Ninth Street, where it returns for the annual two-day street fair that takes over the open air market. Party goes on rain or shine.

Where: Italian Market at 9th Street from Fitzwater to Wharton, 19147

When: May 20, 2017 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

How much: Pay as you go
