Delaware River Festival returns in hybrid form


The Delaware River Festival returns Sept. 24 to Oct. 3 with a hybrid of online and in-person activities in Philadelphia and Camden, N.J.
Partnership for the Delaware Estuary (PDE), in conjunction with the Philadelphia Water Department, the Center for Aquatic Sciences, the Independence Seaport Museum, Camden County Parks, and others, present this week of fun and educational things to do.
There will be paddling events, nature walks, kite flying, online storybook readings, animal presentations, sponsored evenings at Evil Genius and Eclipse breweries (root beer for the kids) and so much more to celebrate the environment and the mighty Delaware River, a source of drinking water for millions of people in Philadelphia and Camden. This year, there will be a special event on Oct. 2 in Chester, Pa., at Subaru Park Plaza.

“This is always such an amazing opportunity to educate people about the river in a fun and engaging way,” said PDE Executive Director Kathy Klein. “The more people know about the river, and the plants and animals that make their homes in the watershed, the more they can appreciate and take care of it.”
