Philly: 5 reasons to check out Cherry Street Pier

#1: Festival for the People continues with its People's Embodied Culture Weekendfeaturing a body art fair, First Person Story Slam, movement classes and performances, and of course, the interactive seesaws and prisms. Be sure to come back for the BIG Closing Party next weekend, which is free with registration. 
 
#2: Get to know the creative community. Many of our resident artists have moved in and will be there this weekend. See what they do, how they do it, and maybe bring home some new pieces for the walls. And don't forget to check out the mezzanine level of studios.  
#3: Enjoy a pre-dinner drink with the most amazing views in town (the bar is open from 5-10pm). Seriously though, can't beat this location. 
#4: Ice cream, Indonesian food, Biscuits, and New American fare. We've got a variety of food to please everyone. 
#5: Be immersed in history. Not the Liberty Bell kind of history, but the industrial history of Philadelphia. Step inside a 100-year-old shipping pier to see the beautiful gabled roof, restored headhouses, train line and train stopper, and beautiful steel work. 
Some commonly asked questions:

When is Cherry Street Pier open?

Dogs are welcome in the park as long as they’re on leashes.

Does the Pier have public wifi?
Yes! Cherry Street Pier has free public wifi. 

Does the Pier have heating and air-conditioning?
No, the Pier is an unconditioned space. That being said, in the summer months we can roll up all the glass doors, and in the winter months we can close them. The artist studios are each fully conditioned. So, if you're coming in the fall/winter, we'd suggest that you bring some layers so that you can spend more time hanging out.
