Every fall, the city celebrates the historic role of design in the region while showcasing the innovation yet to come during DesignPhiladelphia. Now in its 10th year, the annual city-wide festival is one of the largest of its kind in the nation.

During the nine-day festival, approximately 200,000 people are estimated to explore the world of design during more than 120 events held throughout the city. DesignPhiladelphia aims to celebrate and promote Philadelphia a design capital and destination.

More than 400 artists, professionals and students alike, will be represented in practically every design discipline, including automotive, product and interior design, graphic design, architecture, multi-media and urban planning. Events included exhibitions, lectures, workshops and demonstrations to help shine a light on the city’s design scene and history.

Most events are free and open to the public.

DesignPhiladelphia was started in 2004 and now serves as the signature annual event for the Philadelphia Center for Architecture.
