The American Whiskey Convention Is Back And They’ve Spawned a 2nd Event!


This time last year is when when we first started telling you about the American Whiskey Convention, an event that was held at Citizens Bank Park in South Philadelphia on March 25, 2016. We are happy to report that this event is once again on the March calendar (Friday, March 24th), and this year, it’s spawned a second event: The Pennsylvania Spirits Convention (Thursday, March 23rd). Both events, which benefit the Delaware Valley Fields Foundation, will once again be held at Citizens Bank Park.

Below is more information about these funtastic events courtesy of the event’s organizers. We hope to see you there!

The Delaware Valley Fields Foundation will be hosting two large distilled spirits conventions at Citizens Bank Park – the Pennsylvania Spirits Convention on March 23rd and The American Whiskey Convention on March 24th. The events serve as fund raisers for DVFF projects including our SeedSpark program which is helping fund a project with Penn State University to bring back heirloom small grain seeds to Pennsylvanian farmers that haven’t been grown or researched for nearly 100 years. Each event enjoys its own highlights.
