Find beauty amongst the abandoned, obscure and inaccessible sites around Philadelphia during the second annual Hidden City Festival.

Celebrating the “power of place through the imagination of contemporary artists,” the Hidden City Festival features art installations, performance and events in a variety of historically significant and oft-forgotten locations.

For 2013, the festival will highlight eight hidden sites in neighborhoods across the city including Center City, Germantown, Frankford, South Philadelphia and University City.

Scheduled projects from both local and national artists include Jacob Wick’s “Free Germantown”, a social experience which aims to bring life back to the vacant Germantown Town Hall and “Bibotorium”, a pop-up café in the Kelly Natatorium in Fairmount Park.
