Philly SOUL PICNIC a Summer Gratitude Finale

Philly SOUL PICNIC a Summer Gratitude Finale


MESSAGE TO ATTENDEES: Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are cancelling the final 2017 summer date of the Philly Soul Picnic.

Sunday the August 27th is off due to several unexplained permit changes by the parks department. After five successful outings in Fairmount park since 2015 with no incidents, we decided against reconciling the latest requirements necessary to continue at Lemon Hill this month. The host team lamented over this decision as it is our goal to continue providing a quality family outdoor summer activity where everyone can commune comfortably, but it is just no longer feasible. We remain deeply puzzled why the Parks Dept would wait until the week prior to change the location rules after updating our application over 6 weeks ago. This city service needs much improvement.

At any rate, the Philly Soul Picnic will regroup and be back for the 2018 Summer! We deeply apologize for this sudden announcement and want to invite you all to our upcoming 2017 year-end events. Listen out for these plans on our weekly WURD-FM Radio mix show and social media pages. Get the latest happenings directly via e-mail at funkypeopleonline.com, here on Facebook or on iTunes.

Be well, Thanks for another great season and we’ll all dance together again soon! – Philly Soul Picnic Hosts
