Join us September 21th, 2019 from noon to 11 p.m. on 19th Street and Liberty Street in the West End of Allentown.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to ALL of our SPONSORS, VENDORS, VOLUNTEERS, PATRONS, and MOTHER NATURE for an awesome festival! Please join us next year September 21th, 2019!

Every September Allentown’s Theatre District comes together for the West End World of Food Festival, a celebration of Allentown’s diverse cultural community, filled with finger lickin’ food, electric musical acts, and varieties of beer, wine, art, contests, and crafts for the kids.

This is a block party. Good live music, all day, all for free. Did we mention there’s a beer tent? You might come down to Nineteenth Street on September 15th to eat and drink, but you’ll stick around to mingle.

Guess who’s turning four this year? 

Bring an appetite.

Rain or shine we grubbin.


No outside food or drink is allowed at the festival
