• old city fest 2018

Look for Philadelphia’s Historic District, a returning sponsor, to make a lively splash along Arch Street during Old City Fest, bringing lots of activities to the annual autumnal celebration! 
The day will include stories at a Once Upon A Nation bench, 18th-century chocolate making at the Betsy Ross House, a Philadelphia Historic District prize wheel, caricaturists, corn hole, and so much more. Festivalgoers can test their Revolutionary War trivia skills for prizes at the Museum of the American Revolution’s tent. Be sure to check in with the Independence Visitor Center staff for information on what’s happening through Philadelphia and the region, and pick up a FREE Philly PHLASH® Downtown Loop All-Day Pass.  The oversized and always-popular XOXO structure will be the perfect backdrop for participants to capture the memorable day with family photos and selfies! (*New to Old City Fest for 2018.)
