July is packed with festivals, exhibits, and conventions! Here are a few that we’re looking forward to:

xpn fest


1. XPoNential Music Festival will be held this year from July 22-24th on the Camden River Waterfront. The lineup this year is packed with great artists like Old Crow Medicine Show, Ryan Adams, Father John Misty and more.  And did we mention food trucks?!? Be sure to reserve your passes soon, as this event fills up quickly.

2. The Blue Cross River Rink Summerfest is back is back until September 5th! The fest is open daily, free, and open to the public.  The popular spot features a play area for kids, food and drink (including Chickie and Pete’s waterfront crabshack!), and plenty of exciting events throughout the summer.  Plus, it’s also Philly’s only outdoor skating rink – so be sure to bring your roller-skates or rent them there! It costs just $3 to skate. Kids are welcome!



3. While not technically a festival, we’re always excited for warm summertime days at Spruce Street Harbor Park!  Named one of the best urban beaches in America, Spruce Street Harbor Park is back for the summer — open until September 25th — and features dozens of beloved hammocks, a floating restaurant, a huge selection of drafts from the beer garden, outdoor games, and a waterfront boardwalk along the Delaware.  And at night, the entire pop-up park is illuminated by gorgeous LED lights.  It’s free and open daily – need we say more? See you there!
