Popular among tourists and residents alike, the Fairmount Water Works’ neoclassical exterior offers a serene and picturesque view of the Schuylkill River: the perfect backdrop for an event.
Our indoor space offers a truly unique way to host your next networking/social reception, lecture, or seminar.
Our rental fees are all-inclusive, so any service, furniture, or technology we offer is available at no extra cost. And with no required caterers, you can control costs or go all-out with your favorite chef. Base rates are for up to 4 hours of use, plus an hour before and after your event for setup and breakdown. Rentals lasting for more than 4 hours are charged additional time by the hour. Discounted fees for non-profit organizations are available.
