Festival goers gather on Ridge Avenue to celebrate the arrival of spring.

Overview

The Roxborough Development Corporation has decided to cancel our 2020 Spring Fest as recommended by the CDC and the City of Philadelphia. Stay safe and please stay tuned for other events throughout the summer as well as our long-standing Roxtoberfest early fall!

Roxborough celebrates the arrival of spring with the neighborhood's latest event concept the Roxborough Spring Festival. Taking the place of Art Is Life the festival is a place for creative energy, fine craftsmanship, and locally-sourced cuisine.
