It's safe to say there's always something happening in our city, but April has to be one of the best. Outdoor events start to pop up all over, there are more an more festivals happening and it feels as though the entire city is out and about all weekend long. We've rounded up a few of our favorite happenings coming up this month:

  • Cherry Blossom Festival in Fairmount Park: Origami, sushi classes and live performances are just some of the events that take place throughout the nine-day festival, ending this weekend.

  • A Gazillion-Piece Animal Adventure at the Philly Zoo: Life-size LEGO brick animals are on display at the Zoo to tell the story of endangered wildlife and how human behavior impacts and endangered habitats around the world. The zoo created the exhibit to inspire actions that impact global change!

  • The 76ers Playoff Games Begin: The team clinched a spot in the Eastern Conference quarterfinals and hope to finish their season strong. Who will the Sixers play and what will their seed be? Stay tuned.

  • Marvel's Superhero's come to The Franklin Institute: Fans of the superhero comics and movies get a firsthand view of some of Marvel’s most iconic memorabilia — including original Spider-Man art, T’Challa’s Black Panther costume, movie props and concept sketches and more at The Franklin Institute. 

  • Manayunk StrEAT Food Festival & Restaurant Week: Manayunk Restaurant Week begins with vendors and food trucks joining Main Street’s lineup of restaurants for an all-day festival,  the Manayunk StrEAT Food Festival. During Restaurant Week, eateries offer multi-course prix-fixe menus for $15, $25 and $35 - perfect for families or students looking to avoid cooking for a week at a great price!

  • Dining Out for Life:  Help raise funds for local HIV/AIDS services, the Philly event features dozens of the most popular eateries in the city, including Cheu Noodle Bar, El Vez, Harp and Crown, The Love, Little Nonna’s and more. Participating restaurants donate a portion of the day’s proceeds to the cause.

  • 88th Annual Easter Promenade on South Street: An all day affair featuring a parade hosted by Henri David, live music, special brunches and even a visit from the Easter Bunny. 

  • Flavors on the Avenue: Festival attendees can stroll East Passyunk Avenue while enjoying local fare, special drinks and more. Beyond food and drinks, music and an expansive craft market fill East Passyunk, too.
