    One of our favorite things about spring in Philadelphia is the return of all of the festivals. Every weekend you can find a festival for you, be it an arts festival, a food festival, a music festival, a neighborhood festival, or something else. We highlighted the top festivals that we are looking forward to this spring (and may even be attending), trust us when we say that this doesn't even scratch the surface of all the fun, outdoor spring activities that Philly has to offer. So what are you waiting for? Get out there!

     

    Get outside to enjoy the festival fun and share your photos with us on Instagram, Facebook & Twitter @Phillyfunguide, and keep an eye out for the PFG table at select festivals!

    2017 Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival - May 9th - June 18th

     

    Back by popular demand for a triumphant second season, the Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival is a celebration of light and culture that features artisans from China and the Philadelphia region. For seven weeks, Franklin Square will glow with more than 25 larger-than-life illuminated displays of giant flowers, a three-story pagoda, the newly rebuilt Chinese dragon and much more, created using traditional Chinese methods with thousands of LED lights in brilliant colors. Festival-goers will enjoy daily performances, culinary exploration, crafts by working artists, and still be able to play Philly Mini Golf, ride the Parx Liberty Carousel, and enjoy Center City's premier play place during the duration of the festival.
