Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The expansive parking area just in front of the Philadelphia Museum of Art transforms into a massive outdoor event space and beer garden—just the chance you need to spend your summer nights drinking beers in the middle of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway without inciting suspicion from the police. Local artists slap down a massive mural on the ground before the joint opens for the summer. From then on its block party-style shenanigans every night of the week, with concerts, outdoor yoga and film screenings, activity areas for kids and food trucks dotting the premises. Stay tuned for more information about the 2018 season.
