Fall arrives at Spruce Street Harbor Park this weekend in the form of autumnal decorations, spiced sangria, fall brews and (drumroll, please!), a multiple-day Fall Festival.
From Friday, September 19 through Sunday, September 21, the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation and Philly Beer Week team up for three days of festival goodness.
The Fall Festival at Spruce Street Harbor Park, which was one of the summer’s most popular pop-up beer gardens, fittingly celebrates fall beers from the region with a tap list carefully curated by the folks behind Philly Beer Week.
On Friday, look forward to brews from New Jersey and Delaware, on Saturday expect beer from Pennsylvania, and on Sunday, sip brews from Maryland.
In addition to beer, the festival promises a slew of family-friendly activities. Enjoy live music and performances throughout the three-days of the festival (Trinidelphia, Mummertime and Ensemble Novo are a few of the headliners), and flower crown workshops, print making, jugglers and face painting on Saturday and Sunday.
Also enjoy autumnal eats (and sangria) from the park’s restaurant, The Blue Anchor, in addition to mobile eats from some of the city’s top food trucks.
In addition to all of the special festival offerings, Spruce Street Harbor Park will continue to provide guests with plenty of alfresco games like bocce, giant Jenga and shuffleboard.
Admission to the festival is completely free, just pay for desired goods as you go.
For those of you who can’t make it to the Fall Fest this weekend, be sure to hit up Spruce Street Harbor Park next weekend, September 26-28, for closing weekend festivities. For closing weekend, the park is planning to go all out with a big concert on Saturday night, games, Spruce Street Harbor Park prizes and more. Stay tuned.
