After a great season at The Oval+, talking to people about their vision for the Parkway, we are excited for the upcoming celebration of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway’s 100th anniversary presented by the Parkway Council.

With 14 months of awesome events, the festivities kick off with a We Are Connected Festival on Friday, September 8th that will offer family-friendly activities throughout the Parkway Museums District, including extended hours and free or pay-what-you-wish museum admission plus special programs, live music and much more. Details are available here.

The We Are Connected festival is the first in a 14-month calendar of events, exhibitions, community conversations, and promotions to mark the centennial of Philadelphia’s grand cultural boulevard. Planned by the cultural and educational institutions, businesses and residences in the Parkway Museums District, Parkway 100 will continue through November 16, 2018. We’ll see you on the Parkway!
