College Road will be closed-off for the event (between Alexander Road and University Place), which will give an expanded area for families to play, eat, and enjoy the day. This event is free and open to the public. A rain date of August 24th is scheduled.

The afternoon will feature live music from the Philadelphia Jazz Orchestra, a band comprised of top high school and college jazz musicians in the Greater Philadelphia and NJ regions. Other highlights include the opportunity to win prizes, backstage tours, spin art, a photo booth, a beer garden, and crafts with Art Sparks.

Attendees will also have access to exclusive ticket offers for season programming, including such family-friendly artists and productions as the Yamato Drummers of Japan, Cirque Éloize, State Ballet Theatre of Russia's Sleeping Beauty and McCarter's annual production of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.
