As part of their ongoing Center-funded project, Playgrounds for Useful Knowledge, Mural Arts and Cohabitation Strategies, along with guest curator Lucia Sanroman, host a lively community-organized celebration in South Philadelphia's Mifflin Square.

Organized by the Playgrounds for Useful Knowledge committee in collaboration with a diverse group of individuals and civic organizations in South Philadelphia, this outdoor festival is inspired by a growing alliance of the neighborhood's diverse cultures.

The event's many festivities and attractions will include live music, talk shows, dance, and storytelling on the PowerHouse Performance Stage; a picnic space for families to enjoy meals together; fun and creative hands-on activities for kids; tips from Trash Academy on keeping the neighborhood clean; workshops for idea-sharing, co-hosted by local community organizations; and a South Philly Food Contest.

Rain date: September 20, 4–8 p.m.
