Held annually on the third Wednesday in June, the Little Friends Festival is the Friends of Rittenhouse Square’s family-friendly fundraiser. During the Little Friends Festival, the center of Rittenhouse Square becomes a carnival, concert, and block party all rolled into one under a large tent – the same tent that houses the black-tie Ball on The Square the following night. Featuring music, amusements, performances, rides, food, and crafts, the Little Friends Festival is one of the community’s favorite events and brings together hundreds of Philadelphia children and the adults who care for them. In addition to playing games and having fun, many parents consider this event a resource to learn more about educational and extra-curricular opportunities for their children. It is considered by city children to be a “can’t miss” party and marks the unofficial start to summer. Invitations are sent out to members in mid-spring. Tickets are required for admittance. Please contact or 267-586-5675 for more information.
