Planning a program for the 250th in 2026? Want to learn more about why and how to do that?
Join PHILADELPHIA250 and a growing community of creators for a kick-off meeting of the 250th Program Community.

The 250th of American independence is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to showcase the breadth and diversity of our city, our people and rich cultural and heritage assets. And we can only do that with Philadelphia’s greatest treasures—our people, their passions and the organizations they love. That’s you!

During the event, you’ll learn more about:

  • PHILADELPHIA250 and why you should join this unique community
  • Hear from others who are planning programs for the 250th, moderated by the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance
  • Share your ideas for 250th-themed programs

P.S. One lucky attendee will receive a gift certificate from the Garces Group!

The 250th Program Community is a partnership between PHILADELPHIA250 and program organizers inspired by the anniversary to create unique 250th activities, events and experiences all across the city. Program organizers are cross-sector content creators such as historic venues, museums, friends and community groups, and arts and culture organizations—who will bring the 250th to life.
