Taste of Fairmount
Celebrating a Community During a Pandemic

Many of you know Fairmount CDC as the force behind neighborhood events like the Girard Avenue Street Festival, the Fairmount Arts Crawl and the Taste of Fairmount. We love using these events as reasons to celebrate our neighborhood and it has been a heartache not celebrating publicly on our Avenues with you this year. However, this forced moment of pause, allows us to share with all of you some of the quieter work that Fairmount CDC has always done behind the scenes. We are responsible for numerous streetscape and lighting projects, ongoing street cleaning and supporting local businesses within the five neighborhoods that comprise the Greater Art Museum Area: Fairmount, Francisville, Brewerytown, Spring Garden and Sharswood.

The restaurants, shops, parks and landmarks populating each neighborhood create distinct, individual flavors. Taken alone, each neighborhood has its charms and residents who fiercely love it. Taken together, the Art Museum District is a vibrant, exciting area of the city - an area that has come together throughout this unprecedented, uncertain time of COVID to support each other, both as residents and business owners. 

Instead of letting ourselves be overwhelmed by the uncertainty that is a hallmark of 2020, we are using this Commemorative Book as a celebration of the strength, resilience and joy that make the Art Museum District such a unique collection of neighborhoods. We hope this book inspires you to cook a recipe from one of your favorite restaurants, take a walk through the neighborhood to find our many historic monuments and most importantly, continue supporting the local businesses who make our section of the city so special.
