Note: The ODUNDE Festival has gone virtual in 2021. 

The annual ODUNDE Street Festival brings a genuine taste of Africa to South Street and one of Philadelphia’s oldest, historically African-American neighborhoods.

The enormous festival, which began in 1975, normally  takes over a dozen-block radius in the Graduate Hospital neighborhood, gathering hundreds of vendors from around the world.

However, this year’s event will take place online due to COVID-19 restrictions.


Location and contact:

ODUNDE Festival

23rd Street and South Street

Philadelphia, PA 19146

(215) 732-8510

Virtual 2021 Experience

This year’s ODUNDE Festival is entirely virtual, with a full week of events and ways to celebrate, June 6-13.

Pop-up T-shirt and mask giveaways (June 6 and 7, respectively) kick off a week of experiences for the festival’s 46th anniversary. Cooking demonstrations, head wrapping lessons and business roundtables are also on the agenda.

All 2021 ODUNDE events will be streamed live on Facebook and YouTube.
