This December 4th, from 5-9pm, the Fishtown Area Business Association, in association with area merchants and the NKCDC, is organizing Fishtown and Kensington’s biggest, most festive First Friday ever! Spanning Frankford and Girard Avenue with nearly 30 different merchants, galleries and artist’s studios participating, the neighborhood is getting ready to ring in the holiday season with an evening of arts and crafts, good food and drink, live music, and shopping discounts from your favorite merchants!
This event will also feature five new(ish) businesses on Frankford Avenue: the art gallery Extra Extra, café Bella Sera, vintage boutique two percent to glory, dance academy the Philadelphia Argentine Tango School, and artist collectivesPart-Time Collective and Piranha Betty’s Art Market.

In these tough economic times, it is more important than ever to shop locally and support the small businesses that are the life blood of our cities and main streets. Help keep money in the community by coming out and doing your holiday shopping in the neighborhood.
There is plenty to do. See Philly’s hottest emerging artists, learn to tango, check out live music, get your headshot taken and start that acting career, or just play board games and drink wine! With Christmas trees, cocoa and all the yule tidings you can handle, we sure hope to see you there!
