Historic Fairmount Park Scavenger Hunt (Fall 2022)

Discover the fascinating past and present of Fairmount Park on this fun and engaging scavenger hunt!


Saturday, September 24, 2022


10:00am - 2:00pm


Lloyd Hall
1 Boathouse Row
Philadelphia, PA

After a three-year pandemic hiatus, we’re thrilled to announce the return of the one day, in-person Historic Fairmount Park Scavenger Hunt! Unlike the self-paced digital scavenger hunts from the past couple years that were spread out over many weeks, competitors in this hunt use bicycles to traverse Fairmount Park over the course of a few thrilling hours!

If you participated in the 2020 & 2021 summer scavenger hunts, OcTOURber, or WinTOUR, this is your chance to try a more competitive and intense game that also guarantees team fun and offers the chance to meet your fellow competitors while on the move. If you’ve never participated in the scavenger hunts, this special event is a great chance to get to know what it’s all about!

Best of all, we’ll continue the tradition of a postgame party at the Cosmic Cafe’s Ciderhouse bar, with well deserved drinks and a prize ceremony!
