The PECO Multicultural Series kicks off a packed summer of events at the waterfront. With eight different festivals, which represent Philadelphia’s global cultures, the PECO Multicultural Series is unique in its breadth, attendance, diversity, and educational outreach. Starting with the Irish American Festival Sunday June 26, and ending with Brazilian Day Philadelphia in September, this series fills the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing with cultural food, dance, arts, music and more. This entire series is made possible by the generous support of PECO.
Every PECO multicultural festival occurs at the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing, located at 101 S. Columbus Blvd. at Chestnut Street. Penn’s Landing has convenient adjacent parking lots, and can be easily accessed by public transit and by the RiverLink Ferry.
