StrEAT Food Festival is part of the 200th anniversary celebration of Manayunk! Manayunk Development Corporation will host a year of events for the Manayunk Bicentennial that honor and celebrate the neighborhood's rich history. On May 4, 1824, Manayunk received its name at the first town meeting. Originally, the area was known as Flat Rock due to the large flat rock formation at the lower side of Flat Rock Bridge. The name was changed to Manayunk for the Lenape word “Maniung” meaning “where we go to drink.”
