Day OF Exposure

The Philadelphia Federal Credit Union Kensington Derby & Arts Festival has grown in size and recognition year after year. Every year, more than 15,000 visitors stop by to enjoy the Derby, live music acts, unique food trucks, and the many art and merchandise displays. Your business will be in the middle of the Arts Festival to promote and expand your business. Exposure like this does not come by every day!

Mother’s Day Shoppers

This year’s Philadelphia Federal Credit Union Kensington Derby & Arts Festival is conveniently scheduled right before Mother’s Day! For all the last minute shoppers that want to get a unique and special gift for Mom (or maybe potentially forgot to get one all together!), this year’s Festival poses a fantastic opportunity for all our vendors to help Festival patrons find that perfect something for Mom!

Website Promotion

The Philadelphia Federal Credit Union Kensington Derby & Arts Festival website generates a lot of traffic leading up to and after the Festival. As a vendor, your business will be showcased and linked to your preferred social media platform on our website for a full year. For instance, our 2018 vendors are still listed here in our Arts Festival Overview page.

Local Discount

As a community-based event deeply rooted in the neighborhood, local merchandise and food vendors in the 19122, 19125, 19133, and 19134 zip codes will receive a discount on registration!

Protecting the Environment While Having Fun
