Tiny Room for Elephants Festival 2019

April 19–21
Location: The Marketplace, The Gallery, The Platform
Time: Event hours vary

Cherry Street Pier resident artist’s Tiny Room for Elephants is taking over Cherry Street Pier in April to present the Tiny Room for Elephants Festival (#TRFE19), a month-long, collaborative, multi-genre art and music experience.

At its core, #TRFE19 is a living art “gallery” that incorporates styles and mediums of 25+ Philadelphia artists who will be painting and installing art live from April 8th to April 17th at Cherry Street Pier. The community is welcome to come to the Pier during the construction of the gallery to connect with local makers and see the creative process first hand. This will culminate in a weekend-long celebration on April 19th, April 20th and April 21st with live music, DJs, producers, panel discussions, and interactive elements.

Entrance to the festival is free and open to the public. Some events are ticketed. Check the schedule for the details!
