One of our favorite things about spring in Philadelphia is the return of outdoor festivals. Every weekend you can find a festival for you, whether its an arts festival, a food festival, a music festival, a neighborhood festival or something else.
Below find the top festivals that we are looking forward to this spring! Although this doesn't even scratch the surface of all the fun outdoor spring activities that Philly has to offer, there’s plenty here to help you get started with planning your spring. So what are you waiting for? Get out there!
