“Parks on Tap” is a traveling community beer garden that spends multi-day residencies at diverse locations throughout Philadelphia’s parks. The program highlights parks throughout the city and generates funds that support programs and capital improvements.
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 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.
Since it launched it 2016, 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.
