Cherry Street Pier reimagines urban public space—fostering connection, community, and creativity on the central Delaware River waterfront.
The Studios: Some of Philadelphia’s most intriguing artists, creatives, and nonprofits call Cherry Street Pier home. Working out of repurposed shipping containers, our artists-in-residence give the public access to their creative process and product while collaborating to enhance their own work.
The Market: Local merchants and artisans sell their goods and crafts along an open air corridor in the Pier’s main thoroughfare. This bazaar-like commercial space supports emerging Philly artists and gives visitors a chance to buy one-of-a-kind creations.
The Stage: The Pier is a responsive public forum, and the Stage is a constantly revolving and adaptable performance venue, gallery, recreation area, and event space curated for and by the community.
The Garden: An open-air garden under the Pier’s historic steel trusses provides a placid refuge on the river, complete with concessions, ample space for recreation and relaxation, and newly accessible views of the Delaware River.
