NextFab is the official Headquarters for the 2023 Kensington Derby! The Kensington Derby & Arts Festival celebrates human-powered transit, neighborhood artists, and local businesses in Kensington. Originally established as a way to associate the name “Kensington” with the positive artist and maker community, the event has grown into a Philadelphia-wide attraction. Neighbors and new friends alike come out to experience the parade of sculptures and shop with artists and food vendors along Trenton Avenue, a wide cobblestone street that has been part of Kensington’s rich creative history for over a hundred years.
Starting in March NextFab will be hosting monthly open workshops to help the teams build their sculptures in preparation for the race.
