Kathy’s Fall Activities: Dilworth Park

Philadelphia City Hall (1 S 15th St, Philadelphia, PA)

Daily from September 29th through October 8th, enjoy fall on the farm without leaving the city!

For a limited time, the Albert M. Greenfield Lawn at Dilworth Park transforms to a fun-for-all-ages experience to welcome the arrival of autumn. Harvest Weekend is October 6th – 8th and will have lots of hay bales, cornstalks and pumpkins. This 3-day experience embraces the best elements of fall for visitors of all ages. The park will be buzzing with activities and entertainment all weekend-long, including performances from local bands, live pumpkin carving demonstrations and roaming circus performers.

Come hungry to fuel up on seasonal staples, including bratwurst and Bavarian pretzels, and adults can enjoy Tröegs Oktoberfest and Michelob Ultra, along with specialty cocktails made with Maker’s Mark® Bourbon and Haku® Vodka. The Philly Goat Project will be there to entertain guests on Friday night, and on Saturday afternoon, visitors 21 and over are invited to participate in a stein-hoisting contest! Additional highlights include photo-worthy backdrops, apple cider making, kid-friendly pumpkin painting and a locally sourced craft market.

On October 14th, a not-so-scary Halloween celebration will feature a scavenger hunt (complete with a candy treat), free pumpkin painting, spooky story time with the Free Library of Philadelphia and a magic show. Don’t forget to wear your costumes!!
