Weekdays 6:00am - 9:00am

Fall Arts Festival at the Kimmel Cultural Campus is THIS Saturday, September 17th!
Hosted by the Kimmel Cultural Campus and The Philadelphia Orchestra, a free festival-style event featuring more than 50 regional arts organizations.

The fun happens on Saturday, September 17th from 11am-3pm.

This FREE festival-style event is meant to shine a spotlight on the diverse arts and cultural scene in Philly. There will be more than 50 regional organizations participating and on site, with sooo many great performances on two stages.

If you’re a Les Mis fan (and who isn’t amirite?), there’s going to be a performance of “Bring Him Home” from Les Misérables tour cast member, Andrew Marks Maughan. He’s the understudy for Jean Valjean. You know… 24601.

Oh, and we sort of buried the lead. The Kimmel Center Fall Arts Festival has THE BEST TICKET DEALS OF THE SEASON.

There’s a $20 ticket flash sale on over 100 performances, and parents (and especially 90’s kids) you’ll love this:  a one-day-only sale on all tickets to The Lion King!
Flash sale offerings range from jazz favorites like Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Monterey Jazz Festival; to family favorites like Disney’s Winnie the Pooh, Disney Junior Live on Tour: Costume Palooza, and Annie; plus, laughinducing events like Friends! The Musical Parody and Broadway blockbusters like The Lion King, Les Misérables, Come
From Away, and Jagged Little Pill. Tickets for the Philadelphia Orchestra include performances of Strauss and Price, Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4, Mozart’s Requiem; and the Glorious Sound of Christmas
