NEXTFAB is celebrating “A Decade Made Better” to commemorate its 10 year anniversary! On Saturday, June 15th, we will host a large-scale outdoor event taking place in and around the site of our South Philadelphia location.

The festival-style anniversary celebration, produced in association with Milk Street Marketing, will occupy the entire 2000 block of Washington Avenue and will feature interactive exhibits, live music, and local food vendors. A craft beer garden will be provided and operated by Dock Street Brewery, who will be opening their new location a mere one block away at 22nd & Washington Avenue later this summer.

In addition, NextFab members and startup companies will be on display while self-guided tours of the facility will be available. Attendees can register for a drawing with prizes including a free trial membership and participate in a pop-up business pitch competition.

The event is free for the public and open to the entire community.

Featuring musical performances from:
