Fourth of July Celebrations in Philadelphia!

Happy birthday, America!!! Philly is truly the best place to be to celebrate July 4th. Philadelphia is full of history and celebrates our awesome country’s birth like rockstars all week long. From Americen Revolutionary War reinacment fun at the National Constitution Center to a free Philly POPS! Concert to the Art Museum Philly Jam concert extravaganza, there’s something for everyone.

Here are a few of our 4th of July picks:

  • July 2-4th, head over to the National Constitution Center between 10am-5pm and explore the life of a US Revolutionary War soldier at the recreated military camp on the lawn. You can visit the medical tent, practice mustering, peruse swords at the blacksmith shop and much more—perfect for your whole family!
  • Thursday night, enjoy a free Philly POPS! Concert on Independence Mall starting at 8pm. Bring a blanket (or beach towel or lawn chair) and perhaps a little picnic and enjoy the annual America-themed concert. Plus bonus for history lovers, they’ll be reading exerpts of the Declaration of Independence between songs!
  • It might be rainy, but it’s going to be warm no matter what, so why not cool off at the Super Scooper All-You-Can-Eat Ice Cream Festival at Penn’s Landing! Grab $7 dollars and eat your little heart out—and all proceeds benefit the Joshua Kahan Fund for pediatric cancer, so really there’s no better reason to eat ice cream! And if you don’t make it on the 4th, no worries, it’s all weekend from 12-5pm.
  • And you can’t forget that epic Fourth of July Jam on the Art Museum steps! Hosted by comedian Marlon Wayans, the free concert will feature Aloe Blacc, Ariana Grande, Jennifer Hudson, Nicki Minaj, Ed Sheeran and the Philly fav The Roots! Plus, a stunning fireworks display will end the night in fine style. Make sure to bring water and stay hydrated!
