A Taste of Water
This year’s Curious Histories Fest invites you to “A Taste of Water,” a daylong celebration of the water in your world. You are officially invited to attend by Mayor Jim Kenney, who has also declared June 10 Science History Day in Philadelphia.
Have you ever wondered about the water in your tap or bottle? Does water have a taste? Can it affect the flavor of food? How do minerals in our natural environment change how we drink, cook, and eat?
Join us for family activities, hands-on crafts, engaging talks, and yummy tastings, of course! Learn how global waters are affected by geology, sample oysters and beers from local watersheds, and let your tastebuds lead. Then visit our museum and see special collections showcasing strange and wondrous water histories. Enjoy food trucks, special guests, live music, and so much more.
