Happy Independence Week!

Fourth of July week! I've gradually lost interest in digging up interesting weekly events, I think because, initially, when I first started putting together the events listing, it was easy - I got lucky due to the critical mass of interestingness in Philly and school was still in session. However, if I do come across interesting weekly events, I will post them (with precedence given to recurring/seasonal events like the Penn Museum)

Wednesday, July 1,2009 (ongoing)

PEX Summer Festival 2009
Friday-Monday, July 3-6, 2009
Ramblewood Resort, Darlington, MD

In case you don't already have plans for the busy 4th of July weekend, the PEX Summer Festival promises to be a Woodstock kind of gathering for music lovers but with cabins and the whole retro going back to summer camp feel.


  1. July 4th weekend is always a nice time in Philly. Much of the city has gone down to the shore which makes for a great time to head into town for many of the days events. But big crowds at the Art Museum for the fireworks so take SEPTA.

  2. Thanks for some great ideas. Not feeling this long weekend so far as far as public events go. Welcome America's invitation of Cheryl Crow is making me nauseous. But I think I might go to Sundae at the Piazza.
