Philadelphia and the surrounding region are connected by a network of streams, creeks, and rivers that all drain into the Delaware River. This network is the Delaware River Watershed, and every year, the Alliance for Watershed Education, a group of 23 environmental centers across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, holds the River Days festival. River Days is a multi-day and multi-destination festival, with a diverse schedule of events.
Most River Days events are free, and you don’t need a car to enjoy them. Head to Tacony Creek Park this weekend for the Tacony Creek Park Music and Arts Festival starting at 1pm. Then next weekend, come out for the annual Rubber Duck Race at 10am at Cobbs Creek Park.
River Days events are taking place until October 10th, and the easiest way to get there sustainably is by using the GoPhillyGo trip planner.
