Summer gets a proper send-off in Philadelphia this Labor Day weekend (September 3-6, 2021) with tons of fantastic things to do both indoors and out.
First, what’s a holiday without fireworks? Head out in to Philadelphia’s Countryside to bask in the glow of fireworks lighting up the sky at Longwood Gardens, Shady Brook Farm and Sesame Place.
The long weekend also brings the return of Made in America, back on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway for its 10th anniversary with headlining sets from Justin Bieber and Lil Bab. Other concerts and comedy shows over the holiday weekend include Patty Jackson’s Party in the Park as well as performances by Maroon 5, Godfrey and more.
Those looking to beat the heat can head into the region’s museum and attractions, where programming awaits at the Museum of the American Revolution and the National Constitution Center, and special exhibitions wrap up at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, The Rosenbach and the Mercer Museum.
Plus, top attractions like Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest, Parks on Tap and Spruce Street Harbor Park are open all weekend long.
This summer, every weekend is something to celebrate. Make it awesome with Free Parking Saturdays and discounted tickets purchased at the Independence Visitor Center to 29 top attractions in the city. Here’s how it works.
Extend the fun with the Visit Philly Overnight Hotel Package, which includes buy-one-get-one-free tickets to those same 29 attractions, plus free hotel parking (up to $100) and a comfortable bed you don’t have to make.
If you’re out and about over the long weekend, you know the drill: Mask-wearing is strongly recommended for all individuals at indoor public places, and advance tickets or reservations remain recommended or necessary at many spots. Your best bet: Plan ahead. Read more right here.
