Historic Penn Treaty Park, Fishtown, and The Fishtown Neighbors Association are very proud to host the 9th Annual RiverCity Festival on Saturday, October 8th, 2016, from 12-6 PM in historic Penn Treaty Park. This free festival reinforces friendships in our community, promotes local businesses, and showcases what makes Fishtown stand out as a neighborhood with a tremendous history and vibrancy.

Once the runners return from their scenic run, they will be able to enjoy music all afternoon from the main stage while enjoying a post-run beverage in the hospitality tent.
