Fishtown Shadfest is back, with bigger bite.

From My Community @

Fishtown’s annual Shadfest returns this weekend, but this year, the event will cap a full week of events in honor of the boney, scrappy fish that gave the neighborhood its name.

Shadweek kicked off on Saturday, April 16, with the Fishtown Fishing Derby and Easter Egg Hunt followed by Tuesday, April 19’s, Delaware Bay Oyster Happy Hour at Johnny Brenda’s at Frankford and Girard avenues.

More events remain for those looking to celebrate the shad. At 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 21, Fishtown Shadfest organizer AJ Thomson will host Fishtown Shadquizzo at the Starboard Side Tavern, Gaul and Norris streets.
