Named in honor of William Penn’s historic landing in Philadelphia in 1682, Penn’s Landing hosts events, attractions and entertainment all year long.

The area along the Delaware River waterfront is home to year-round attractions like Independence Seaport Museum; stunning open spaces like Cherry Street Pier and Race Street Pier; and restaurants like the Moshulu.

Perhaps most notably, Penn’s Landing is home to some of the city’s most popular seasonal parks, including Spruce Street Harbor Park and Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest and Summerfest.

Plus, throughout the year, happenings and events like farmers markets, concerts, art exhibitions and more take place throughout the spaces at Penn’s Landing.

Tying everything together: stellar views of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, the Delaware River and the Camden waterfront across the river in New Jersey.
