In previous years, the event has been held at the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center, the Palazzo on the Parkway, the Smith Memorial Arch in the Centennial District of West Fairmount Park, Strawberry Mansion Music Pavilion in East Fairmount Park and at the Boathouse in FDR Park in South Philadelphia.

This event is made possible with the generous help of individual ticket holders as well as corporate sponsors. Potential sponsors for this event include businesses and organizations who are passionate about Philadelphia’s parks and whose consumers tend to be park users.
