Wishing you a healthy and happy new year from the Roxborough Development Corporation!

Join us to reminisce about our favorite memories from 2022 and welcome in the new year. Seeing the comeback of activity and events on Ridge Avenue this year was a joy. The RDC brought back the famed Roxtoberfest as a full-fledged street festival and the Pocket Park had fun programming every weekend throughout the summer and fall. Ridge Avenue businesses continued to see more and more customers too.

We are looking forward to bringing you even more new exciting things in 2023!

Enjoy the photos highlighting scenes from 2022 in chronological order.
