Curious about what goes on behind the scenes at FringeArts? Interested in learning more about the history of our converted theater and restaurant? Join us for our Historic Building Tours at FringeArts!
In 1903, Philadelphia became home to the first High Pressure Fire System. Decommissioned in 2005, the HPFS had led to a decline in fire losses and served as the backbone to the Philadelphia Fire Department for over a century. Today, the words “High Pressure Fire Service” are still on our building.
But this isn’t your average historic building tour. This is your chance to learn about how we’ve revamped the space to promote contemporary art as innovative as the history behind our building.
Grab a drink from La Peg and enjoy Happy Hour before or after your tour. You can meet our staff members by the “About Our Building” sign inside La Peg to begin the tour. Tours start at 5:30pm and run approximately 20-30 minutes.
