How to Spend Memorial Day Weekend Near the Main Line

May 22, 2019

Memorial Day weekend is right on the horizon, which means you have an entire extra day to lounge with friends—or to check out some of the special events going on around the Main Line with those friends. This roundup of activities showcases some of the best Memorial Day entertainment, from live music at the Magic Gardens to special tours of Independence Hall.

On May 24th, kick off your Memorial Day weekend at Spruce Street Harbor Park, where the UNIVESTival will be going on. It brings live music and crafts to the popular waterside park, along with a fireworks display on Saturday. On the 25th, head to the Mann Center to enjoy the musical stylings of The Philly POPS, who will be playing a patriotic set list in honor of the season. Check out the full roster of events to find one that interests you.
