Philadelphia's Parks on Tap's Returns of 2021
As in years past, patrons are invited to enjoy fresh food, beers on tap, wine, and more set in an outdoor environment with comfortable chairs and clean restrooms. New for this year, Parks on Tap will partner with the Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia to present the Shofuso Cherry Blossom Viewing. This new campaign includes three weeks of prime Cherry Blossom viewing, socially distanced activities, virtual programming, and new Japanese-inspired fare.
Parks on Tap will also feature products from Two Local’s Brewing, Philadelphia’s first Black-owned brewery, and will offer three weeks of free live performances to celebrate Jazz Appreciation Month. Hours and days for Parks on Tap outside the Horticulture Center will be Wednesday to Thursday, from 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm, Friday from 4:00 pm to 11:00 pm, Saturday from Noon to 11:00 pm, and Sunday, from Noon to 10:00 pm. Admission is free. Food and drink are pay-as-you-go. Reservations are required, with walk-up reservations being offered if space permits. Masks and social distancing are required.
“FCM Hospitality is proud to bring back Parks on Tap for the 2021 season,” said FCM Hospitality Owner Avram Hornik. “We are excited to partner with the Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia for a special three-week campaign entitled Shofuso Cherry Blossom Viewing that showcases Fairmount Park during the most beautiful time of year. Our special relationship with JASGP goes back to 2017 when the two organizations collaborated to present Parks on Tap at Shofuso Japanese House and Garden. Last year, with the pandemic hitting at the start of the season, many Philadelphia residents missed these stunning flowers. We are grateful for the opportunity to work together and find a socially distanced way to celebrate the return of one of our city’s great natural treasures.”
For 2021, FCM Hospitality announces the return of one of Philadelphia’s most beloved summertime traditions. Parks on Tap is back for the season starting on Saturday, April 3rd, at Noon outside Fairmount Horticulture Center (100 N. Horticultural Drive). For the first time, guests can enjoy two adjacent locations, each over an acre, located between the Fairmount Horticulture Center and the Centennial Arboretum. The beer garden set-up outside the Horticulture Center will be self-contained within roped boundaries, providing its own power, bathrooms, food and drink trucks, seating, shade, and lights. This means they can raise more money for park improvements and future programming.
