CollegeFest Weekend 2022

August 31, 2022

Campus Philly, the non-profit organization that fuels inclusive economic growth by empowering diverse college students and recent graduates to explore, live and work in Greater Philadelphia, will welcome 10,000+ new and returning college students to its annual (reimagined, weekend-long) CollegeFest celebration on both Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11, 2022.

More than 25 museums, cultural institutions, activities, and events (full list here) will offer free admission and experiences throughout the weekend, exclusively for college students who sign up for CollegeFest. Attendees will also be able to ride SEPTA Regional Rail, subway, bus, trolley, and Philly PHLASH for free - making it easier than ever for college students to travel to and around Philadelphia! Free rides on SEPTA are between 10AM-5PM on both Saturday, 9/10 and Sunday, 9/11.

This is the second year in CollegeFest history, students attending schools just outside of Philadelphia will be able to ride SEPTA Regional Rail for free to travel to and from the city, providing an ideal introduction to the accessibility and affordability of visiting Philadelphia’s arts and cultural activities, many of which offer year-round student discounts. With participating venues all across the city, CollegeFest attendees will be able to ride SEPTA to visit and explore different neighborhoods, museums, and activities, all at no cost to them, giving them more opportunities to find their fit and learn about their new city.

Weekend highlights include the Campus Philly Block Party on Race Street between 19th & 20th Streets from 11AM-4PM on Saturday & Sunday! Connect with top Philly brands including Dunkin', Insomnia Cookies, French Toast Bites - and us!
