FIT FEST is a day-long festival that celebrates creativity and gaining physical fitness through the arts. Hosted by Almanac Dance Circus Theatre with funding from the Penn Treaty Special Services District, FIT FEST features workshops, demonstrations and incredible performances overlooking the Delaware River, from some of Philadelphia's finest performance crews! In the summer of 2013, a trio of young artists started hanging around Fishtown’s Penn Treaty Park. They attracted a bit of attention, as they rather gracelessly attempted acrobatic feats. They had their first public showing of an acrobatic duet with live music in the park in August, 2013. That duet was called Communitas, and those people went on to found Almanac Dance Circus Theatre. Now, 5 years after the premiere of Communitas, Almanac returns to Penn Treaty Park, sharing a day long celebration of arts, movement, and our cherished public spaces. Bring Your Own Picnic! 2-6pm: Workshops, demonstrations, food and community performances 6pm: bring a blanket or some chairs, and settle in for an evening of dance and contemporary circus performance 8pm: Almanac’s free, outdoor presentation of Communitas: 5 Years Later Fit Fest is made possible by a generous grant from the Penn Treaty Special Services District.
