Celebrate fall in the Fishtown neighborhood during the annual RiverCity Festival at scenic Penn Treaty Park on the Delaware River Waterfront.

The neighborhood festival, presented by the Fishtown Neighbors Association, is a free celebration of local music, food and businesses in Fishtown.

The festivities for the annual celebration kick off with the RiverCity Fun Run, a 5K throughout the streets of Fishtown, beginning and ending at Penn Treaty Park. Following the run, the festival continues with a beer garden, live music and vendors in the historic park.

The Experience

A free celebration of local music, food and businesses in Fishtown.

The RiverCity Festival offers a daylong outdoor fun fest overlooking the Delaware River and showcases all that the Fishtown neighborhood has to offer.

Guests can enjoy a lineup of live musical acts and shop away at local businesses and craft vendors that are on site selling their wares throughout the event.

The beer garden — a festival favorite — features a variety of craft beers, many provided by Philadelphia-area breweries.

Kids are sure to be entertained, too. Games and activities in past years have included a moon bounce, an inflatable obstacle course, magic shows and pet tent sponsored by local, animal-focused organizations.

Getting There & Tickets

The festival is free admission, with pay-as-you-go food, drinks and shopping.

Street parking is limited near Penn Treaty Park, but there are plenty of easy ways to get there.

Festival-goers can take SEPTA’s Market-Frankford subway line to Girard Avenue and Front Street; from there it’s a 10-minute walk to the fun. The #43 bus stops right at the park. Or, guests can hop on a bike and take advantage of the festival’s bicycle valet service.
