Fishtown is celebrating the end of summer with its recently-adapted fall 'feastivale' on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 12 to 8 p.m. Check out the most popular bars and restaurants in the neighborhood while shopping from nearly 100 small local vendors.

There is no shortage of ways to celebrate the beginning of fall in Philadelphia, as most neighborhoods host community festivals that let the whole family get in on the fun.

The Fishtown Fall Feastivale is taking place on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 12 to 8 p.m. along Frankford Avenue. Guests can check out nearly 100 market vendors from Girard to Columbia Avenue, as well as tons of food and drink options.

The Fishtown District had previously hosted a street fair known as "FestivALE," but organizers decided to change the name and time of year in order to focus on more food options that are available in the neighborhood.

Food at the end-of-summer festival includes burgers, brisket, Bavarian pretzels, gluten-free baked goods, vegan treats and pickle boats. Everything also can be paired with seasonal cocktails, draft beer and cider.

There will be three DJ stages and music will be playing during the entire festival. The line-up so far includes DJ Pooh Geez and DJ Nate G.
