The annual Odunde Street Festival brings a genuine taste of Africa to South Street and one of Philadelphia’s oldest, historically African American neighborhoods. Odunde is a Yoruba word that means “Happy New Year.” Every year, the Odunde Festival draws vendors from not only America but from an array of African and Caribbean countries as well.
