Six years ago this September a group of South Philadelphia neighbors came together to form the East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association. In subsequent years, their membership base and programs grew exponentially. People of every age and culture live within EPX’s borders. Let’s celebrate that diversity by coming together for an anniversary potluck dinner. If everyone makes their favorite family recipe, we’ll be able to learn more about our neighbors while enjoying delicious food!

  • When: Sunday, September 9 5pm-9pm
  • Where: the EPX Center on the Neuman-Goretti campus

Wondering what to bring? Here’s a helpful guide:

If your last name begins with

  • A-H: Salad or Appetizer
  • I-P: Sides
  • Q-Z: Desserts

Your friendly Board Members will take care of everything else!

RSVP HERE by Wednesday, September 5 with what you plan on bringing and how many will be attending so we can be sure we have enough food and drinks for everyone!

Thank you for making the last six years so fantastic and we look forward to seeing you on Sunday the 9th!
