July is cooking up to be full of great music and good food at Gold Star Park. The park, located at 6th and Wharton, underwent major transformation this spring and now has a fabulous green space perfect for Thursday night picnics and listening to music!
The South Philly Food Co-op is partnering to bring food fun to the well-established summer music series organized by Friends of Gold Star Park. They’ll also have membership applications and volunteers on-hand to answer questions. Bring your checkbook or your credit card and join the co-op on the spot!
Tonight features the following food and music:
July 7 – AMLA Youth Latine Jazz Ensemble and Local Fruit and Veggie Tasting
Music: Artístas y Músicos Latino Americanos (AMLA) Youth Latin Jazz Ensemble
Since 1982, AMLA has promoted the development, dissemination, and understanding of Latin music and culture in the Philadelphia area. AMLA’s programming emphasizes youth and family participation in the arts!
Food: The Co-op will be providing samples of in-season fruits and vegetables for everyone to sample. Bring your friends, bring your neighbors, bring your kids – this is a great way to become familiar with what is in-season in our region and maybe try something new.
They will also feature a blind “Taste-Test” pitting Local/Organic versus conventional produce. Do you think you can tell the difference?
