Annual Rittenhouse Row Spring Festival returns to Philly today

    The annual Rittenhouse Row Spring Festival returns to Philly today and runs from noon to 5 p.m. The festival spans five blocks– it runs on Walnut Street from 19th Street to Broad Street.

    There will be plenty to do at the festival including tasting samples from restaurants, taking in entertainment and live music, watching a fashion show and much more.


    The food is one of the biggest draws at the festival, as some of Philly’s best restaurants serve delicious food for affordable prices, according to uwishunu.

    In addition, Starr Restaurants is teaming up with Philabundance to fight hunger.

    Philabundance is raffling off two prize packages in exchange for donations. To enter the raffle, $1 or one nonperishable food item can be donated for one chance and $5 or five food items will get you seven chances to win. The prizes are:
    1)      Dinner for two at 16 Starr Restaurants in Philadelphia
    2)      A Stephen STARR Events catered dinner for four at your home

    Beer and spirits available for sampling will include several high-end lines.

    For those with children, The Center City District Craft Pavilion will feature make-and-take crafts led by the Academy of Natural Sciences, Arden Theatre Company, The Franklin Institute, Pennsylvania Ballet, Philadelphia Museum of Art and Walnut Street Theatre.
