Mark your calendars for the four-day, Star-Spangled Weekend on the Waterfront, from Friday, June 28 through Monday, July 1. We’ve got everything you need to commemorate our nation’s freedoms, from free US Army Band concerts to not one, but TWO, firework shows and markets, children’s activities, free movies and more. The Philly Waterfront will be filled with red, white, and blue vibes, all weekend long.

Plus, enjoy pre and post-event hangs with family, old and new friends at Spruce Street Harbor Park Sustained by Univest, featuring hammocks, floating barges, tasty eats by Garces, Chickie’s and Pete’s, Hip City Veg, and Franklin Fountain, and an awesome bar menu with local craft brews and hard-to-find favorites that you can only get on the waterfront!

Roller skate from morning ’til night at Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest, the largest outdoor rink in the region, featuring a Ferris wheel, carousel, and boardwalk games. No torturous shore traffic (you’re welcome) or sand in your shoes!

Spend the weekend exploring the new Cherry Street Pier, filled with fun interactive art installations, artist studios (don’t forget to say hello to our resident creators), and – of course – an open-air garden filled with cafe tables, life-size games, and breathtaking vistas you can’t find anywhere else (also a perfect viewing location for the fireworks along with neighboring Race Street Pier).
