Brews & Views: Spring Rooftop Mini Series at the Free Library

Friday, June 29 through Sunday, July 1

Community Food & Drink Parkway District

Enjoy drinks on the Skyline Terrace and take in spectacular views of the city at the Parkway Central Library's spring rooftop beer garden series!

Local craft beers, wine, and refreshing cocktails will be available to purchase, along with a menu of snacks from Brûlée Catering, including a charcuterie and cheese plate and Bavarian pretzel sticks.

There will be entertainment every week to energize the crowd, and the street team from radio sponsor 96.5 TDY will be on site!

The June and July beer gardens will coincide with Wawa Welcome America, the annual multi-day festival on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway celebrating Independence Day with free concerts, movie screenings, community events, fireworks, and more. Festival-goers can stop in to the Parkway Central beer garden on their way to or from the Parkway festivities.

No tickets needed to attend! This is a family-friendly event; you must be 21+ to purchase and consume alcohol. Registration will be in the library’s main lobby. Please have a valid photo ID ready when you arrive.
