Funds raised will support the preservation of the historic Headhouse Square Shambles. The Shambles is America’s oldest surviving Colonial-era marketplace, also known as “New Market.”  Built before the Revolution in 1745, its design mimics the many market structures or rural England – characterized by two parallel rows of brick pillars supporting a gable roof that covers an arched and plastered ceiling.  Farmers, merchants, traders, and craftsmen would back their wagons under the archway where Colonists would shop.  Headhouse Square Farmers’ Market, Phair, Veg Fest, Green Fest, Philly Beer Week Beer Garden and many other events all call the Shambles their home during the year.

Come hungry and ready to try the best hot dogs that Philadelphia has to offer!

Thank you to sponsors 5 O’clock Brew Co., Drink Philly, Green Mountain Energy, Mom Pops, Uber, Victory Brewing Company and Yelp Philly.

Join us in launching a new music and performing arts series for 2014 in the South Street Headhouse District

Proceeds from this fundraising event will be used to match a Knight Arts Challenge grant award from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Celebrate the milestone anniversaries of businesses in the South Street Headhouse District, as we recognize the past and prepare for the future.

Earlier this year, the District was awarded a prestigious John S. and James L. Knight Foundation – Knight Art Challenge Grant to produce a new music and art performance series in the District in 2014. The “Challenge” is the requirement to raise funds to match the grant. If you have longed for the return of music and arts to the street to make the District even more vibrant, then join us for this fundraising event. We plan on having a special night of music, food, entertainment and a silent auction, all with a goal of raising funds for this new initiative.

Also, this year has seen many milestone anniversaries for many SSHD businesses, as well as the SSHD itself (20 years). We want to recognize and acknowledge those businesses who have operated in the District from those marking their first anniversary to those who have been here 100 years. Join with your friends and neighbors to celebrate the past and the future of the South Street Headhouse community.
