The sights, sounds and smells of
autumn are almost upon us! And all will be on full display at an upcoming
neighborhood festival that showcases the best and brightest of Manayunk—all
just steps from your The Isle apartment.
Manafest is a brand
new Manayunk celebration designed to welcome fall in the way our neighborhood
does best: a street festival! Set for Sept. 21 along Main Street, right outside
your The Isle apartment, the event is billed as a “homegrown” festival—meaning
all of Manayunk’s exciting entertainment, dining and shopping opportunities
will be curbside for all to enjoy.
The festival will feature a stage
with rotating live entertainment—from local musicians to family-friendly acts.
The entire event is designed as family-friendly, so if you have little ones in
your life, you can’t miss this one. Expect pumpkin carving, face painting,
games, photo ops and much more! And if your little one has four legs, not two,
bring them along as well, as this open-air festival welcomes pets!
If you’ve ever been to a Manayunk
street festival, you know food is the highlight—and that will be no different
at Manafest! Food trucks will line both sides of Main Street, offering tastes
of the local neighborhood and beyond. Wander up and down the street and sample
and snack all day. Or, if you want to take advantage of all of the culinary
excitement right here in Manayunk, stop into any of the Main Street
restaurants, bars and eateries, many of whom will be offering specials
throughout the day. No fall festival is complete without ciders, warm wine and
spiked cocktails, and all will be up for grabs at the beer garden and local
Local shops will also be featured in
the vendor section, along with artisans, merchants and other businesses. If you
want to get an early start on your holiday shopping, this is a great place to

dozen, but this celebration uniquely highlights the diverse and exciting
offerings here in Manayunk—and couldn’t be any closer to home!
