Across the city this weekend, Philadelphians will be able to experience locally-grown food and local music as the two come together for the Philadelphia Home Grown Music Festival, happening from September 12-14.

The goal is to support locally grown food, food justice and food independence all while providing the opportunity for local musicians to showcase their work. The festival will take place over three days at community gardens and urban farms located throughout the city.

The kick-off will be on Friday, September 12 with live music at Bartram’s Garden, 5400 Lindbergh Blvd, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Live music will continue at various locations throughout the city on Saturday, including Overbrook Environmental and Education Center, Urban Tree Connection, Norris Square Community Garden and more (view a complete list here).

On Sunday, The Philadelphia Urban County Fair (PUCF) will take place at the Philadelphia Peace Park in Sharswood at 2400 Bolton Street. The event is a volunteer-driven community festival and potluck celebrating the renewal of Philadelphia’s neighborhoods through urban farming, art, education and sustainable community development.

Participants are asked to bring their best looking vegetable to display on their table, their own utensils, a dish to share to the PUCF. In addition, there will be a series of workshops, including an intro to backyard chickens, an panel on urban farming, and more.
