Benjamin Franklin Parkway Centennial
“Parkway 100” is the name of this centennial celebration honoring the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. It began in September 2017 and continues until October 26th. The festival features family-friendly activities spread across the Parkway Museums District as well as both inside and outside entertainment.
Reading Market’s 125th Birthday
Since 1893, Philly’s Reading Terminal Market has offered locally grown and sourced food, housewares, and flowers. February 22nd will kick off a year-long celebration of its legacy, complete with period costumes and Victorian décor on “1893 Day”. Rumor has it that many vendors will also be dropping their prices back to Victorian-era times as well!
