Kensington Kinetic Derby and Arts Fest
Trenton Ave. Norris to York
On Saturday, May 11th, 2019, the Philadelphia Federal Credit Union Kensington Derby & Arts Festival will enter its 13th year celebrating human-powered transit, neighborhood artists, and local businesses in Kensington.
Originally established as a way to associate the name “Kensington” with the positive artist and maker community, the event has grown into a Philadelphia-wide attraction. Neighbors and new friends alike come out to experience the parade of sculptures and shop with artists and food vendors along Trenton Avenue, a wide cobblestone street that has been part of Kensington’s rich creative history for over a hundred years.
