Mt. Airy’s Supper Sessions return for a culinary extravaganza


Mt. Airy is gearing up to host its signature outdoor event, Go Mt. Airy Supper Sessions, a monthly festival for dining alfresco, strolling with street food and supporting the community’s small businesses.

For four Wednesdays, from June through September, the bustling 7100 and 7200 blocks of Germantown Avenue will be transformed into a family and food paradise. Guests can indulge in culinary delights from their favorite local eateries, enjoying their meals at communal tables nestled amid the trolley tracks of Germantown Avenue.

Hosted annually by the Mt. Airy CDC, this year’s Supper Sessions are scheduled for 5 to 9 p.m., June 12 (rain date, June 26), July 10 (rain date, July 17), Aug. 14 (rain date, Aug. 21) and Sept. 4 (rain date, Sept. 11).

The festival’s cuisine features everything from wood-fired pizza to artisanal baked goods. Participating restaurants include Toska Restaurant & Brewery, Bar Lizette, McMenamin’s Tavern, and Mi Puebla. Food trucks and carts such as 2 Street Sammies, Korea Taqueria, and Cousins Maine Lobster will serve deliciousness, while The Frosted Fox, Federal Donuts, and Aunt Verlea’s Pound Cake will tantalize with sweet treats.

If you like your supper with a side of shopping, many of the Avenue’s small businesses will be staying open late to showcase their merchandise and services whether you need a body wax, tattoo or hairdo. For the kids, youngsters can bounce away on a moon bounce, enjoy storytelling sessions and special music, make crafts and get their faces painted. A DJ will provide the soundtrack.

Parking for Supper Sessions is available at the lot behind the Sedgwick Theater. For those using public transit, SEPTA's 23 bus route will be rerouted one block east to Chew Avenue to make way for all the fun.
