5 Must Go-To Events in June #FiveFriday

With the Memorial Day weekend just passing, the summer has officially kicked off. We always try to make the most of the summer and have some memorable days, but sometimes we feel as if we fall short. Many run to the shore throughout the summer because they feel as if Delaware County does not provide many summer events, but that could not be farther from the truth. Delco has an array of activities for all ages during the summer. Whether you’re a night owl or prefer the crack of dawn, Delco has an event for you. Here are a few suggestions for the month of June.



Sports buff or not, this event fun for everyone. Come hear the roar of the crowd and listen to the entertaining chants of the “Sons of Ben”. While watching the game, you can see why the Philadelphia Union is becoming one of the most popular teams in the city. Come see the Union take on an Eastern Conference rival, the Chicago Fire. Also for Delco Night, there will be a discounted rate with tickets only costing $20, so invite everyone down to Talen Energy Stadium. For groups of 10 or more you will receive one autographed item, video board recognition, and chances to win game day experiences. Finally who doesn’t enjoy a great tailgate before the game? The Delaware County Chamber of Commerce will be hosting their own tailgate before Delco Night with food and beverages being provided by Pat’s Pizzeria and Sterling Pig Brewery.

2.       Dining Under the Stars


Experience al fresco dining at its best and stroll the iconic State St. of Media. While attending the night, you can experience delicious cuisine and shop some marvelous stores that make Media the perfect night out. Since the event closes State St. from Jackson to Orange St., you can stroll through the night without having to worry about traffic, and reminisce of the open-air cafes in Europe. With live entertainment throughout the night, you do not need to just sit and eat. Come tour Media and take in one of the most popular events in Delco.

Every Wednesday (throughout the summer)
5 PM – 11 PM




If nightlife is not your thing and you prefer the saying, “Early bird catches the worm” then the Lansdowne Farmer’s Market is perfect for you. This event is great way to spend a summer morning just moseying through the array of tables offering a bounty of locally produced fruits, vegetables, meats, cheeses, and breads. With so much popularity, the market attracts local and out of town shoppers throughout Delaware County.

Every Saturday (throughout the summer)
9 AM – 1 PM




This summer you can experience some amazing blues groups in Media too. With more than 20 bands performing in 23 indoor stages, you can walk your way through many popular bars and restaurants on State St. without having to pay a cover charge, with the purchase of a ticket.  To cap off the night, Shemekia Copeland, daughter of Johnny Copeland, will be headlining the festival and you can see how “the apple did not fall far from the tree.”

With Marcus Hook kicking off its annual “Down By the River” music festival in the end of June, this could be the perfect night out during the week. The festival takes place at Market Square Memorial Park, with its beautiful summer atmosphere. Also the festival is FREE to the public. You can listen to some amazing acts through the summer. Kicking off the festival will be Stray Sounds, whose music spans over 5 decades playing funk, country, and rock playing old classics to new releases.
