September 8, 2018 | 10am-3pm | Dilworth Park
Kick off the semester – and your Philly college experience – with students from all over the Philadelphia region at Campus Philly’s all-day, totally-free festival in Dilworth Park (right next to City Hall!) featuring outdoor games, prizes, giveaways, pop-up performances, and FREE admission and transportation to Philly’s top museums.
That’s right – we’re teaming up with the Philly PHLASH bus to give you free rides all day long, all across the city, to these must-experience museums (and yes, admission is 100% FREE for CollegeFest attendees!)
- Philadelphia Museum of Art (make sure to run up the “Rocky Steps” while you’re there!)
- Eastern State Penitentiary
- Franklin Institute
- National Liberty Museum
- Museum of the American Revolution
- National Constitution Center
- Rodin Museum
- National Museum of American Jewish History
- Academy of Natural Sciences
- Independence Seaport Museum
- Betsy Ross House
- The Fabric Workshop and Museum
- Philadelphia Theatre Company (walkable from Dilworth Park – just a few blocks south on Broad Street! Note: Philly PHLASH will not be going to this location)
- Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) (walkable from Dilworth Park, just a few blocks north on Broad Street! Note: Philly PHLASH will not be going to this location)
- Mural Arts walking tour (departing from Dilworth Park at 1 p.m. – space limited so get there early to sign up!!)
- Penn Museum (perfect for Penn and Drexel students to visit after the party at Dilworth Park! Note: the Philly PHLASH will not go to this museum)
Admission is FREE to these museums only when you register for CollegeFest, which you can do NOW and skip the line at the event, or can register in-person on September 8. Bonus: when you register before September 1, you’ll be entered to win a gift card!
The party lasts ALL DAY at Dilworth Park, too! We’ll have giant jenga, corn hole, relays, bubble soccer, and more outdoor games, plus pop-up performances throughout the day, and tons of opportunities to win prizes from local companies (curious who will be there? Read more on our blog!).
