August 2023 Meetup

Join 5th Square organizers and volunteers for an informal, in-person meet-up over at the Mural City Cellars garden in Fishtown!  This is an outdoor, family-friendly event.

The Mural City Cellars garden is a project of NKCDC, the Fishtown District BID, and Mural City Cellars winery, based in Fishtown. Very on-brand for our group, there is a Rt 15 trolley-turned-bar at the venue! A pop-up food vendor or two is typically nearby, but you can also order from Pizza Brain or some other places in the area. 

We'll be talking with Riverwards area projects of interest to members in this part of the city, like two city efforts aimed at improving bike and pedestrian connections, the possibility of a Lehigh Ave rail park, and some other exciting things happening in the Fishtown/Kensingon area. 

These meet-ups are casual social gatherings, and are intended as a fun way for new and existing supporters to connect with other people involved with 5th Square and urbanist issues in Philadelphia, either professionally or in a volunteer/activist capacity, and learn more about what our all-volunteer organization is up to. If you've been meaning to check out one of our events or meetings but haven't made it out yet, this will be a good first one to come to. And please bring a friend or two!
