CANCELLED: WEST POWELTON SUMMER FLING

We have unfortunately had to CANCEL the West Powelton Summer Fling this Saturday 6/29 due to unfinished road work on Powelton Avenue creating unsafe conditions in the street. 


We are deeply disappointed to have to cancel, but need to prioritize safety and accessibility for all of our guests, vendors, and entertainers, and will not be able to hold the event while uneven road surfaces would create hazardous conditions.


We have scheduled a new date for the event, Saturday, September 14th. Please mark your calendars and look out for more communications closer to the new date of the event. 


Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to seeing you there in the Fall!

A MESSAGE FROM THE ORGANIZER OF OUR LAST CLEANUP:

We would like to thank everyone who came out for Philadelphia’s Annual Spring Clean Up on April 6th.  For those who were unable to attend, we hope you can join us for future Park events.  The weather was a bit chilly and windy, but we had a good time and over the course of the day 72 people came out to volunteer.  We made great progress collecting approximately 150 bags of trash, leaves, and debris; the Park looked noticeably better after we were through.


On June 1st 2024 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm, we will be hosting another Work -N-Play Cleanup at Lee Park and Cultural Center, to continue our support for this green space.
