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!
Back by popular demand for a triumphant fourth 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. Festival-goers will enjoy daily performances, culinary exploration, crafts by working artists. Plus, you’ll still be able to play Philly Mini Golf, ride the Parx Liberty Carousel, and enjoy center city’s premiere play place during the duration of the festival.
