Philadelphia’s Historic District Block Party

12:00 PM until 07:00 PM


Welcome America turns Independence Mall and the surrounding area into a family-friendly block party on Sunday, June 30th. This will be the 5th annual Historic Philadelphia Block Party. Thousands of attendees will come together to enjoy a festive event that commemorates our country’s freedom and the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection. This year’s block party will feature a variety of entertainment, food trucks and pop-up performances. The excitement includes diverse genres of music with a focus on strong female performers, educational elements, arts and entertainment, health and wellness and food. This year’s block party will feature acts at People’s Plaza on The Freedom Stage, with performances leading into the evening’s Gospel on Independence.

In addition to the Freedom Stage and the vast variety of food trucks, there will be the Kids Zone, which will be programmed specifically for the young attendees. This area will focus on arts, education, entertainment, and health and wellness. 

Event sponsors will also be dispersed around the footprint offering samples of food and drink and fun giveaways.
