5th Square Rescheduled Holiday Party + Awards Ceremony

Join 5th Square members and friends for our rescheduled Holiday Party at 990 Spring Garden on Thursday, May 5th from 7:00 to 9:00 PM, where we'll be holding off our Third Annual Urbanist Awards ceremony!

5th Square will be presenting awards to members of our community for their outstanding contributions to Philadelphia’s urbanist movement in 2021.

Since 2014, 5th Square political action committee's all-volunteer team has been hard at work supporting candidates for public office who support our mission, and then holding them accountable between election cycles for building a city that works for all Philadelphians—with safe streets and sidewalks for pedestrians and cyclists, high-quality affordable transit, abundant housing choices, and high-quality public spaces in every neighborhood. 

Come celebrate with other Philadelphia built environment activists, neighborhood and community leaders, architects, planners, builders, and sustainability advocates at the urbanist holiday party of the season!

Complimentary drinks and light fare will be served.

Tickets will be $40 at the door ($30 purchased online).

Proof of vaccination is REQUIRED for all attendees.

Children ages 5+ who have completed both vaccine doses are welcome, free with admission. There will be a craft activity table and kid-friendly food.
