From Friday, June 27 through Sunday, August 31, the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation — the creators of this past winter’s Waterfront Winterfest at the Blue Cross RiverRink — turns the Penn’s Landing Marina at Columbus Boulevard and Spruce Street into a pop-up summertime village.
Don't miss the Art Star Pop Up Market
For summer shopping, the crafty folks behind the Art Star Gallery & Boutique are curating an open-air retail experience with vendors housed inside repurposed shipping containers, complete with murals by Bonnie Kaye Whitfield and Michael Konrad, among other local artists.
The Art Star Pop Up Market is a small, open air market featuring the work of 20 of the finest makers from Philadelphia and the surrounding region. The Pop Up Market will be held on Saturdays from June 28th – August 30th along a tree lined walkway within the Spruce Street Harbor Park. Customers can expect a variety of handmade goods all priced affordably with most items priced under $50. Come shop our curated group of vendors between 11am-3pm every Saturday, weather permitting. In case of poor weather, we may cancel. Please visit this page and we will update it with any cancellations due to weather.
From DRWC: Spruce Street Harbor Park
The Spruce Street Harbor Park at the Penn’s Landing Marina is a two-month summer program throughout July and August that will bring a boardwalk, urban beach, fountains, and misting areas to the Delaware River Waterfront. The centerpiece of the project is a series of floating barges complete with lily pad water gardens, a pop-up restaurant and bar, and nets that will suspend visitors over the water. The full design of the project including the landscaping and programming will help evoke the maritime history of the area, and will celebrate the River’s industrial past and the bright future ahead for Philadelphia’s waterfront.
