The 11-day Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts spans the city with theatrical spectacles that remind us how damned exciting art can be. Look out for a maze of fire at Penn’s Landing, a giant-scale replica of the moon hung in Verizon Hall and an interpretation of Hamlet starring a herd of sheep (yes, you read that right). Dig into the schedule to find a bunch of weird and wonderful things perfect for you, and definitely hit up the PIFA Street Fair on Broad Street on June 9.
