The majestic Benjamin Franklin Parkway will be transformed for Made In America’s sprawling outdoor festival.
Last year’s festival featured three entrances: the main entrance at 22nd Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, a second general admission entrance at 23rd Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, and a VIP entrance at 24th Street and Martin Luther King Drive at Eakins Oval. In addition to the three stages, the festival grounds will also feature a specialized food truck area, merchandise tents and a bevy of beer gardens. Stay tuned for additional information about this year’s festival.
Wondering what you can and can’t bring along? The festival does allow attendees to bring items like factory-sealed plastic water bottles or empty plastic water containers, a small non-framed backpack, blankets, non-professional cameras and small hand-held umbrellas. What you can’t bring: outside food or drink, coolers and audio or video recording equipment.
