Bridesburg ‘River Ways’ Story Series

Travel back in time to the Bridesburg of yesteryear.  “Bridesburg River Ways” is a new story series from Philadelphia artist Aislinn Penecost-Farren about Bridesburg and life along the river. The river wards neighborhoods along Riverfront North have a long and rich history with the Delaware River, these are stories of their connections.

Bridesburg Impact Grants (BIG)

Thanks to the generous support of the William Penn Foundation, RNP has launched Bridesburg Impact Grants (BIG) to bring your ideas to life within the Bridesburg community – and ultimately the new park. These $500 grants are designed to spread the word about all the great things that this neighborhood offers to the people who live here.

Bridesburg Patriotic Porch Decorating Contest

Riverfront North Partnership (RNP), with support from The Philadelphia Foundation, is hoping residents and business owners use all these and more in an effort to create a sea of red, white and blue throughout the 19137 zip code in celebration of Memorial Day. 

As a bit of an incentive, RNP is sponsoring a home and business decorating contest with six winners to be selected by an independent judging committee. $50 prize winners will be selected from six categories. Get all of the details on our contest page.
