Philly is kicking off August with a bunch of awesome festivals. From theatre, to music, to foods of all kinds this weekend certainly won’t disappoint. We’re even getting out of the city this weekend so get out and enjoy what is left of the summer of 2016, Happy August!
Philadelphia Women’s Theatre Festival
The Philadelphia Woman’s Theatre Festival began yesterday and runs through Sunday. This theatrical event celebrates women in theatre throughout the Philadelphia area and features staged readings, musical performances, and developing work just to name a few. The theme for this years festival is “I took a risk” but luckily between buying individual tickets for performances or a pass to see all the shows for only $50 is not much of a risk for you to participate this weekend! For more information or to buy tickets or passes visit their website.
