Philly’s traveling beer garden is once again on the move.
Parks on Tap shifts out of park and into drive as its journey back to its original format begins Labor Day weekend. For the first time since Covid-19, the beer garden will travel to a new park every week. Parks on Tap will remain at Water Works until Aug, 28, then starting Aug. 31, Parks on Tap will relocate to a new park every Wednesday through Sunday, starting at Penn Treaty Park, then Clark Park, Columbus Square, and Matthias Baldwin, and ending at Schuylkill Banks.
Each location will offer local brews and bites. This unique collaboration between FCM Hospitality and Philadelphia’s Parks and Recreation Department was originally designed to bring people together and activate the city’s parks in a fun, family-friendly environment. Over the pandemic, the program enjoyed longer-term residencies around the region. Now the program will move around once again and shine a light on the public parks and spaces Philadelphia has to offer.
“Parks on Tap is on the move just in time for fall,” said FCM Hospitality Director of Special Events and Promotions Neina Langford in a statement. “Over the pandemic, Parks on Tap took on a season-long residencies at beautiful destinations around the city. Now, by popular demand, the traveling beer garden will travel each and every week.
“The original mobile format was created to introduce locals and visitors alike to the variety of incredible, beautiful public places all throughout our great city. We are very proud to offer this to our community.”
Parks on Tap will touch down in five neighborhoods across Philadelphia starting Wednesday, Aug. 31 through Sunday, Oct. 2.
The schedule includes:
Penn Treaty Park: Aug. 31 – Sept. 5
Clark Park: Sept. 7 – 11
Columbus Square: Sept. 14 – 18
Matthias Baldwin: Sept. 21 – 25
Schuylkill Banks: Sept. 28 – Oct. 2
FCM Hospitality will be donating 25% of proceeds from 4 to 6 p.m. each Wednesday directly to the Friends Group of Penn Treaty Park, Clark Park, Columbus Square, and Matthias Baldwin, on their respective weeks.
