  • Taqueria Morales will be at each event, accepting cash or Venmo.
  • The boathouse is covered so the event takes place rain or shine.
  • All ages and experiences are welcome. Minors must be accompanied by an adult.
  • The boathouse is open-air — please dress according to weather conditions.
  • There are nearby bathrooms (porta-potties) available.
  • Bring your own water and snacks (there are no nearby drinking fountains).
  • Bring sunscreen and bug spray.
  • The boathouse has a staircase entrance that is not ADA-accessible.
  • No alcohol is allowed to be brought into the event.

There is plenty of free parking in the lot between the boathouse and the Swedish Museum. As always, never leave valuables in your car! If traveling by public transit, use SEPTA to travel to Broad Street Line’s NRG Station (last stop). The nearest Indego bike station is at Broad and Pattison.
