The Annenberg Center at the University of Pennsylvania hosts this family-friendly festival for the 33rd year this May. The engaging event includes professional performances of all kinds—from magic shows to circus arts to dance (see “Dates and Times” for the full list of shows). Outside, at PlazaMania, kids and parents can partake in fun-filled activities like face-painting and balloon-animal workshops, munch on food-truck fare and even enjoy a special appearance from the city’s beloved baseball mascot, the Phillie Phanatic.
