Celebrate the Holidays in Philly

Philadelphia has plenty to offer visitors all year round, but this winter, take a trip to the City of Brotherly Love to experience some truly special attractions.

New this year, the iconic Tinseltown Holiday Spectacular (November 17, 2023 – January 1, 2024 [select dates]) takes over South Philly’s FDR Park with twinkling lights, seasonal sounds and icy activities. Take in the sights as you skate along a winding ice trail or glide down a 160-foot-long ice slide. Check out the Mistletoe Marketplace to find that perfect gift, or grab a bite to eat and an adult beverage inside the Union Forge Lodge. 

Christmas Village in Philadelphia (November 18 – December 24, 2023 [select dates]): LOVE Park transforms into an open-air European marketplace during the annual free-to-explore, pay-as-you-go Christmas Village in Philadelphia.

After shopping up an appetite, indulge in tasty treats like raclette sandwiches, spiced wine, apple cider, strudles, and more. Across the street on the north apron of City Hall and in the City Hall courtyard, a double-decker Christmas Village Carousel, Ferris Wheel, and Kids Train await. New for 2023: later operating hours, more lights, Vegan Wurst Wednesdays and more.
