According to Center City's Beth Duke, the event benefits vendors and the community as a whole.

"Every one of these vendors in a local business person," said Duke. "Everything is locally sourced, prepared and made. Another way it helps is it brings so many people downtown."

The event's opening drew over 1000 people in 2017 and was expected to draw even more in 2018.
