Celebrate the season in America’s most historic square mile with Historic Holidays in Old City, presented by Old City District.


A Tree Lighting Ceremony will signal the start of the holiday season in Old City, Philadelphia. 


As part of Historic Holidays in Old City, start a charming new holiday tradition with Old City’s Window Decorating Contest!  Wander the historic streets of Old City, and view the delightful displays designed by local shops, restaurants, museums, galleries, and more. Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favorite design for a chance to win an Old City Prize Pack!  The window designs will be on display through the New Year.


Also new this year, don’t miss a weekend pop-up Old City Holiday Market!  Be sure to explore the neighborhood, and see everything Old City has to offer during the holiday season.
