“Parks on Tap” is a traveling community beer garden that spends multi-day residencies at diverse locations throughout the City’s park system, highlighting and enhancing the offerings our parks provide — and generating funds to support the parks’ maintenance.
Parks on Tap introduces residents and visitors to Philadelphia’s incredible, and often unknown, assets and helps them experience familiar parks in new ways. The program encourages people to discover, use, enjoy and support open park space.
Parks on Tap draws people into the parks, providing ample seating, restrooms and additional amenities for all to enjoy. It features concession trucks with regional craft beers, wine, a selection of non-alcoholic beverages, and a menu of delicious, picnic-style food selections. Guests enjoy an enhanced social experience through special activities such as live music and games on site in addition to each park’s unique activities and events. A portion of the proceeds benefits Philadelphia’s parks.
In its second season, over 20 weeks from May through October 2017, Parks on Tap welcomed over 100,000 people into over 20 different locations in Philadelphia’s park system. Over the past two years, it has successfully generated revenue to support improvements, maintenance and programs in the city’s parks. Every season, Parks on Tap will continue to expand its reach to Philadelphia parks, introducing more residents to these amenities, and transforming the idea of a park into a celebrated community backyard.
Parks on Tap is a program in partnership with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation, Fairmount Park Conservancy and Avram Hornik of FCM Hospitality. For the latest updates on the Parks on Tap schedule, please visit ParksOnTap.com.
