Things to do this Spring in Philadelphia
(and neighboring cities)
What to look forward to this March, April, May, and June…
Are you looking for things to do this spring? Are you ready to spring around town?
As the temperatures get a little warmer and the days get a little longer, the city offers extra big-time events, festivals, and celebrations in every corner of Greater Philadelphia all season long.
Spring Around Town
To help jumpstart your fun and sun, I compiled a list of places to see and things to do in the Greater Philadelphia area.
In Philly, spring starts with favorite cultural traditions like the South Street Festival, Manayunk StrEAT Food Festival, Kensington Arts Festival, and South 9th Street Italian Market Festival.
Satisfy your sports on beautiful green grass as the Philadelphia Phillies and Philadelphia Union return to championship form in front of raucous crowds at Citizens Bank Park in South Philly and Chester’s Subaru Park, respectively.
Dining deals increase during springtime culinary celebrations like King of Prussia Restaurant Week, Reading Terminal, and Dine Latino Restaurant Week.
This spring also sees its share of monumental music moments, like Beyoncé and Taylor Swift nearly sold out three shows at Lincoln Financial Field.
Also, The Roots Picnic welcomes legendary performers to the Mann Center.
Other cool venues with live music include Cherry Street Pier and Juneteenth.
There are major exhibitions at Philly Art Museum and attractions this spring — including the can’t-miss magic of Disney:100 The Exhibition at The Franklin Institute.
In addition, there are free museums such as the Philly Art Museum, which is free or discounted for students, young adults, and seniors.
Every first Sunday, the Art Museum is free but accepts voluntary donations.
Check out the top site-seeing places Philly has to offer on a budget:
Independence National Historical Park
The Liberty Bell
The President’s House
The United States Mint
Philadelphia’s Five Original “Squares”
The LOVE Statue & LOVE Park
Spruce Street Harbor Park
Whether running like Rocky up those magnificent museum steps, visiting Independence Hall, eating a cheesesteak at Reading Terminal Market, or visiting the museums along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway – these experiences make Philly so gloriously Philly.
