With Father’s Day approaching fast on the horizon, I decided to take the time to sit back and write a quick and honest list as to why Art for the Cash Poor 2017 is probably the best place to hang out with Dad this Sunday…or the whole weekend, if you prefer. 



A Kung Fu Hoagies’ hoagie

1.) We’ve got food trucks lined up and ready to dish-out the most original and delicious hoagies, soups, sandwiches, and ice cream you will probably ever have on this side of Philadelphia. 

That’s right, folks. On Sunday, June 18th:  Kung Fu HoagiesFarm Truck Philly, and Zsas’ Ice Cream will be in the courtyard of the Crane Arts Building from  Noon-6pm.  So it’s the perfect opportunity to take your dad out for some second breakfast, noonsies, lunch, afternoon ice cream, dinner, and supper.

2.) There will be a bar to go with your food. 

What better beverage is there to go with a fresh hoagie or some hot soup, than a cold beer or a mixed drink? Can you think of one? I most certainly can’t. Anyway, this year at Art for the Cash Poor, sponsors New Liberty Distillery and Quaker City Mercantile will be providing Pennsylvania Dutch Malt whiskey as well as some original mixed drinks, respectively. There will also be hard apple cider, and cold, local craft beer served on tap. 







Live music @ AFTCP 2016

3.) There will be live music to go with the bar that goes with your food.

Our Sunday musical guest line-up includes performances by Heart Harbor (solo), TC Cole Riot, and Mental Jewelry.  Enjoy performances from these local indie bands while you kick back in our courtyard.

4.) There will be art to go with the live music, that goes with the bar, that goes with your food. 

We’ve got artist vendors from all across the Philadelphia area and beyond, selling original works that you can’t find anywhere else. From paintings, to prints, to ceramics, and even t-shirts, at Art for the Cash Poor, you’ll definitely find something cool to give your dad.










5.) There will be fun to go with the art that goes with the live music that goes with…you get the idea.

Bottom line is, Art for the Cash Poor is simply just fun. It’s an awesome event that I’ve been attending and volunteering to work at for over 6 years now. With great food, drinks, art, and also people to hang around with, it’s the perfect event to bring your dad on Sunday for some chill time. 






InLiquid is proud to present our annual summer art sale at the Crane Arts Building, Art for the Cash Poor 2017. Based on the premise that everyone can be an art collector, AFTCP is one of the longest running art festivals in the Kensington/Fishtown area. The focus of the event is that all works, both by emerging and established artists alike, are priced at under two hundred dollars. It is a unique event that brings artists and the public together in an accessible way for everyone.
