Philadelphia Outfest 2019
Philadelphia is home to the largest National Coming Out Day event in the country, and it’s coming back for another edition. Outfest celebrates the vibrant history of Philadelphia’s LGBTQ community in its world-famous Gayborhood area. The party stretches dozens of blocks, and features drag shows, interactive games, bar crawls, live music performances and shopping opportunities. There’s a main stage that showcases big name acts throughout the day, as well as speeches, belly dance shows, and award ceremonies. Also expect to discover outdoor bars, dance parties, and a whole lot more.
Travelers visiting for Philadelphia Outfest 2019 should check out our Out and About Package. We partnered with local LGBT community center William Way to create a package that includes an immersive tour of Philadelphia’s Gayborhood and special hotel perks. Also, while in town, be sure to visit Giovanni’s Room—the oldest LGBTQ bookstore in the nation, and one of The Independent Hotel’s proud local partnerships.
