MANAYUNK » The Fall StrEAT Food Fes­ti­val will re­turn to Manayunk for its first-ever evening edition Thurs­day, Sept. 14, from 5 to 10 p.m. with more than 70 dif­fer­ent food ven­dors along Main Street to kick off Manayunk Restau­rant Week, which will run from Fri­day, Sept. 15, to Thurs­day, Sept. 28.

Main Street will be closed to ve­hi­cle traf­fic for this rain-or-shine event, giv­ing vis­i­tors of all ages an op­por­tu­nity to stroll through the neigh­bor­hood and in­dulge in some food truck cuisine.

Ven­dors who cre­ate an ap­ple dish will par­tic­i­pate in a con­test where three of the area’s food­ies will be judg­ing.

In ad­di­tion to food trucks, vis­i­tors can en­joy three stages with live mu­sic play­ing all day lo­cated at Shurs Lane, Green Lane and Cot­ton Street.

Aside from driv­ing to Main Street, event co­or­di­na­tors en­cour­age at­ten­dees to con­sider other forms of trans­porta­tion like SEPTA, taxis, Uber, Lyft and rid­ing or walk­ing to Manayunk via the Cir­cuit Trails.

“Our StrEAT Food Fes­ti­vals have been wildly suc­cess­ful over the last five years, but we wanted to change it up this time,” Jane Lip­ton, ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor of the Manayunk De­vel­op­ment Corp., said. “We wel­come the after-work crowd to come to Main Street for din­ner. We’re ex­cited to have some of the same great food ven­dors line the street for our evening edition.

“I’m also very ex­cited about this fall’s Restau­rant Week lineup,” Lip­ton added. “It’s a great way for peo­ple to come to Manayunk and try some­thing new. We’ve had a lot of new restau­rants come in since last fall, like SOMO. But, you can never go wrong with Manayunk sta­ples, such as Jake’s and Cooper’s Wine Bar and Bour­bon Blue.”

Manayunk Restau­rant Week al­lows lo­cal restau­rants to highlight exclusive three-course meals at $15, $25 and $35 price points. Many of the par­tic­i­pat­ing restau­rants use Restau­rant Week to show­case their fall menus and other sea­sonal dishes. For a com­plete list of Restau­rant Week menus, visit Manayunk.com.
