In 2011, last time FERIA was held, it attracted over twelve thousand people, bringing together national and Philadelphia-based Latino musicians and dancers for six (6) hours of live entertainment presented on its main stage. Free to the public, FERIA also provides art demonstrations, information booths, craft sales, artists and artisans, children’s games, and performances by local artists. FERIA attendees have their choice of cuisine from various Latin American countries. In addition, it promotes the products and services of many area organizations and businesses along the FERIA route on the 2700 and 2800 blocks of North 5th Street between Lehigh Avenue and Cambria Street. This collaboration of four organizations brings together years of experience in the arts, education, social services and community development.
