Philadelphia is a magical place during the holiday season — with plenty of festivities around the city, you are bound to get into the holiday spirit. Typically, Philly offers plenty of holiday events, and one standout travelers can still enjoy amid pandemic restrictions is Winter on Broad Street.


Feel the glow of the holidays as you step into an illuminated escape at Winter on Broad Street: A Holiday Light Spectacular! Located right outside Wells Fargo Center, guests celebrate the magic of the holidays by wandering through 193 larger-than-life light sculptures and displays. Enjoy seasonal surprises along the path as the twinkling wonderland comes to life.


The outdoor experience is more than 160,000 square feet of holiday spirit — with plenty of room for social distancing. To make the most out of your time and to be sure you see everything, check out the event map.


To add to the holiday activities, satisfy your seasonal cravings and enjoy your favorite holiday-inspired treats and dining options throughout the event space. Looking for a little something extra to warm up? Enjoy spiked ciders and cocoas, mulled wine and festively inspired cocktails.


Once you’ve walked through wonderland, explore Mistletoe Marketplace. Complete your holiday shopping at this wintertime artisan village. Shop from a variety of vendors offering unique gifts and festive goods, such as hand-crafted ornaments, winter clothing, custom artwork and décor.


After a little shopping, stop by Gritty’s Seasons Greetings. Snap pictures of the beloved Philadelphia Flyers mascot as he pops into his workshop. Gritty super fans can even book a timeslot to take a picture with Gritty Claus.


Other must-do attractions include curling, reindeer games, letters to Santa, ornament decorating and more.


If you are interested in attending, purchase your tickets and book your timeslot online. Winter on Broad runs Nov. 27–Jan. 3, 2021.
