Cherry Street Pier reimagines urban public space—fostering connection, community, and creativity on the central Delaware River waterfront.
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.
Local merchants and artisans sell their goods and crafts along an open-air corridor in the Pier’s main thoroughfare. On special market days, this bazaar-like commercial space supports emerging Philly artists and gives visitors a chance to buy one-of-a-kind creations. To see our upcoming market events, visit here.

The Pier is a responsive public forum, and the Platform is a revolving and adaptable performance venue, gallery, recreation area, and event space curated for and by the community. Contact us to inquire about using the Platform for exhibitions and programming.
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.
