Go Mt Airy Supper Sessions, Mt Airy CDC’s signature outdoor event, is back again for 2024, with 4 events this summer! Come out and rediscover the community and small businesses that make our neighborhood unforgettable.

Sponsorship: If you are interested in sponsoring Supper Sessions, please contact pdawson@mtairycdc.org. 

WHEN It Is: We’re going monthly on Wednesdays from June to September:

  • Wednesday, June 12, 5:00-9:00pm (rain date Weds 6/26)
  • Wednesday, July 10, 5:00-9:00pm (rain date Weds 7/17)
  • Wednesday, August 14, 5:00-9:00pm (rain date Weds 8/21)
  • Wednesday, September 4, 5:00-9:00pm (rain date Weds 9/11)

Please Note: Food & beverage sales cease at 9pm. Patrons are required to leave the festival footprint by 10pm.

WHAT It Is: At Supper Sessions, the 7100 & 7200 blocks of Germantown Avenue are closed to cars, trucks and buses, and Mt. Airy’s historic commercial corridor is opened to the people. Patrons can order from their favorite eateries and sit down to enjoy their food at communal tables arranged across the Belgian blocks and trolley tracks of Germantown Avenue. Sit down with family and neighbors, or better yet, make a new friend as you enjoy local fare. In addition to brick-and-mortar restaurants, guest food trucks add some rotating variety, local live music and a DJ set the vibe for the evening, and kids activities including story time ensure that Supper Sessions is fun for the whole family. If you like your supper with a side of shopping, be sure to explore the shops that will be staying open late along the block.

Parking and Logistics: While the 55 parking spaces in the municipal lot behind Rothe Florists are closed for the event, over 80 spaces in the lot behind the Sedgwick Theater are available—enter off of Chew Avenue between E. Durham St. and E. Mt. Airy Ave. SEPTA’s 23 bus is also rerouted one block east to Chew Avenue.

Family Fun: Our Kids Zone near the intersection of Germantown Ave. and E. Mt. Airy Ave. will offer 3 activities at no cost to families. Just Bouncin’ will set up a moon-bounce for the enjoyment of children, and Fabulous Faces will offer face painting and balloon twisting. Mt. Airy CDC is proud to offer free children’s literacy activities on all event dates. We will also have children’s musicians on select dates, child-focused vendors, and more!

Merch: Visit the Go Mt. Airy tent to get your hands on a 2024 Mt. Airy t-shirt or baby onesie, available for purchase on-site. We will also be selling a Klean Kanteen festival cup that entitles you to $1 off a beer of your choice at six participating vendors whose logos are on the back of the cup: Bar Lizette, Toska, McMenamin’s, Tired Hands, Young American Hard Cider, and Attic Brewing.

Composting: New for this season, Bennett Compost will be collecting food scraps for compost at festival events in July, August, and September. Started in 2009, Bennett Compost diverts over 100 tons of waste monthly, serving over 6,000 Philadelphia households and businesses. They are joining the party to help us divert food waste from the landfill and incinerator and keep our community healthy.
Find their table in front of The Shop on the Ave (7149 Germantown Ave.) to compost your Supper Sessions food scraps, say hi, learn more about Bennett Compost’s work, and sign up for a FREE trial to start composting at home.
