Due to increasing logistics and cost, we have decided to take a year off to reevaluate our approach to the presentation of our event. In the eleven years of our existence, the event has grown more than we could have possibly imagined. We are most proud of being able to introduce our wonderful gem, Penn Treaty Park, to thousands of Philadelphians who might never have enjoyed our beautiful home park. We always strove to produce the highest quality event for our vendors, attendees and sponsors. The event also serves as a fundraiser for the Fishtown Neighbors Association and as such, we have a responsibility to do all we can to control costs and at the same time ensure a quality, safe event for all.

We can’t extend enough thanks to so many contributors to this wonderful event. From the event staff, volunteers, vendors, runners, attendees and of course the sponsors. Without the full support of all of these groups, we’d never have been able to pull this thing off even once, let alone for 11 years.

We’re hoping to be back for 2020 so please follow us on Twitter @rivercity_fest for any updates.¬†¬†Thank you for your continued support.
