The Fishtown Neighbors Association and YELP is very proud to host the 10th Annual RiverCity Festival on Saturday, October 14th, 2017, from 12-6pm in historic, Penn Treaty Park. This FREE festival reinforces friendships in our community, promotes exciting local businesses, and showcases what makes Fishtown stand out as a neighborhood with a tremendous history and vibrancy.


We will kick off the day with a 5K fun run. This run will begin and end at Penn Treaty Park winding through the historic streets of Fishtown. Once the runners return from their scenic run, they will be able to enjoy the music all afternoon on our mainstage while enjoying a post-run beverage in the hospitality tent. Run registration includes tech t-shirts, beverage tickets and swag bags for all.


WXPN Welcomes Swift Technique along with local favorites Candy Volcano, Creem Circus, Minka, Maitland and Ali Wadsworth rounding out the live music lineup on the Eagle One Credit Union Mainstage.


Local vendors and businesses are in full support of the festival, displaying a wide array of arts and crafts. It will certainly be exhilarating to see what these talented Philadelphia area residents have created for festival visitors to enjoy.
