Have you ever thought about what it’d be like if a city had absolutely 0 cars on the road? Sounds 28 Days Later-ish, I know. But what if everyone was allowed to come roam around in their beautiful city, without any worries about cars?

What would you do with all that open space and pavement? Skateboard, run, explore, bike, walk the dog, walk the cat, HiiT on the Rocky Steps?

Well, what are you doing on September 24? Meet Philly Free Streets!

Because the City of Philadelphia plans to close over 10 miles of its city streets, so you can get out and do whatever, wherever you want in our city, for it’s first ever Philly Free Streets event.


The closed streets span from South Street all the way up to Fairmount Park and MLK Blvd. At the end, there’s a live concert and all kinds of fun activities in Sweet Briar park.
