Fete Day at Elfreth's Alley

Elfreth's Alley Fete Day

On June 3, 2023, the Elfreth’s Alley Association will hold its annual Fete Day celebration. This is an event which dates back to 1934 (89 years!), in which residents of Elfreth’s Alley open their doors to allow visitors a glimpse of 21st century life in these 18th- and 19th-century houses. Discover how generation after generation have continued to preserve, alter and add to these historic structures.

There will be entertainment and history aplenty to enjoy as you walk by/inside the homes on the street. In the past we have welcomed musical groups, food vendors, artisan crafters, and historians to share their passion of the Alley with guests! We are so excited to welcome you all back this summer!

This event is a fundraiser for the Elfreth's Alley Association, which works to preserve this historic street and tell the stories of this place through the Elfreth's Alley Museum (at houses #124 and #126) and events throughout the year. There are a variety of ways to support our organization, including volunteering at events and in the museum, shopping in our gift shop, and donating if you can.
