The Arts in Philly Are Back!

22nd July 2021

For too many months, locals have been stuck home attending Zoom happy hours and binging Netflix, wishing for the days of socializing with friends in person and immersing yourself in all of the exciting arts and culture offerings of the Philly area. Well thankfully this summer, the city is slowly reopening and life is getting back to normal, which means you can bust out of your The Victor apartment and take in both the sunshine and your social calendar.

Enjoy both at Summerfest, a riverside festival taking over the Philly side of the Delaware River through the end of the summer. Food, drinks, rides, games, cultural events and more make Summerfest one of the region’s most exciting outdoor adventures—and it’s all just 10 minutes from your The Victor apartment!

Summerfest offers something for visitors of all interests. If you’re heading there for the ambiance, get ready to feel transported to a carnival or the Jersey shore: a 60-foot Ferris wheel, a carousel, rides and lights strung from one side of the riverside park to another. Carnival-style games, an arcade, a miniature golf course and roller rink complete the feel.

While strolling the grounds, grab some grub from Chickie’s & Pete’s. Cool off with one of your favorite brews or opt for one of the Summerfest bar’s seasonal craft cocktails. You can also satisfy your sweet tooth with cotton candy, ice cream and other summer treats. Themed events and more make Summerfest one of the area’s hottest summer destinations, and you can take it all in with the exciting backdrop of the Delaware River and its eye-catching views.

Before your summer social calendar fills up too much, make sure to pencil in some time for a visit to the Summerfest to reacquaint yourself with Philly’s exciting summer schedule.
