Philly & More

  • In addition to the free museums, Boathouse Row and Schuylkill River Trail, checkout the newly opened Paine’s Skateboard Park, just south of the Art Museum and Ben Franklin Parkway off Eakins Oval.
  • Make it a full day in Philadelphia and stay for Opera Philadelphia’s FREE outdoor broadcast of Verdi’s Nabucco at Independence National Historical Park at 7pm. Visit operaonthemall.org and openartsphilly.com for more information and to register for Opera on the Mall.
  • We have neighbors this year! The Philadelphia Ratha Yatra & Festival of India will be hosting their cultural festival on the Parkway and at Eakins Oval on the afternoon of College Day. This adjacent event is open to the public but separate from Campus Philly College Day, taking place at the steps below the Philadelphia Museum of Art. More information on the parade can be found at this link.
