Penns Landing Festival Pier - Philadelphia, PA

Situated on the Delaware River, Festival Pier at the historic Penn’s Landing boasts a breezy vibe with its boardwalk, sandy beaches, tropical greenery and river views. Only half a mile from Old City Philadelphia, the waterfront amphitheater is known for its annual Roots Picnic and summer concerts featuring bands like Queens of the Stone Age, Goo Goo Dolls and Young the Giant. The outdoor space has a 6,500-person capacity and is open in the warmer months of March through September.

Finding Festival Pier is easy thanks to Philly’s extensive public transportation system. The most swift and simple route is to catch the eastbound Market-Frankford subway traveling toward Frankford Avenue from 30th Street Station, and get off at 2nd and Spring Garden streets, which is just a block from Penn’s Landing. Parking is available at the venue for $20 per car, and metered spots are nearby as well.

Though the waterfront area offers plenty of riverside dining options, the venue offers treats like corn on the cob, cheeseburgers, shrimp rolls, mac and cheese and gravy fries. The onsite beer garden features craft brews and picnic tables aplenty. Professional cameras and bags larger than the size of a hand aren’t allowed inside, but small clutches and clear, one-gallon bags are OK. Guests can also bring one low-back folding chair to most concerts as well as an umbrella, blanket and one sealed bottle of water—up to one liter.

Penn’s Landing attractions also include a floating restaurant, skating rink, outdoor film screenings and the Independence Seaport Museum. And with Old City within walking distance, there’s plenty to enjoy in this picturesque part of the Philadelphia before or after the show.
