Philadelphia’s annual city-wide celebration of design and innovation



Every fall, the city celebrates the historic role of design in the region while showcasing the innovation yet to come during DesignPhiladelphia.

Now over a decade old, the annual citywide event is one of the largest design festivals of its kind in the nation.

During the more than ten-day festival, hundreds of thousands of people come to explore the world of design during nearly 100 events held throughout the city.

DesignPhiladelphia aims to celebrate and promote Philadelphia as a design capital and destination.

The Experience

DesignPhiladelphia represents hundreds of artists, professionals and students alike in practically every design discipline, including automotive, product and interior design, graphic design, architecture, multimedia and urban planning.

Events typically include exhibitions, lectures, workshops and demonstrations to help shine a light on the city’s design scene and history. Most events are free and open to the public.

Don’t Miss

While events take place across the entire city, The Center for Architecture and Design space in Market East acts as an educational hub throughout the ten-day fest, featuring an ongoing series of workshops, podcasts and panel discussions.
