About Us

Fishtown District is the umbrella for Fishtown Kensington Area Business Improvement District (BID) and Fishtown Co. The BID is a formal entity that allows property and business owners to come together to make a collective contribution to the improvement of their commercial district. Fishtown Co. is a member-based group with businesses joining to promote and pool resources for events, security, and marketing. Members of Fishtown Co. fall outside the geographic area of the BID, but as an organization, they can benefit from the programs.

Established in 2019, the Fishtown Kensington Business Improvement District began working to brand the Fishtown District as the ideal spot for entertainment, travel/vacations, dining, shopping, wellness, books, art, and music. Our growing corridor is mentioned in local, regional, and national publications as a must-see for anyone visiting the City of Philadelphia.
