New Year, New Things!




Happy New Year my fellow arts and culture enthusiasts! With the holiday season fervor slipping away, we have returned to our daily routines (blah). Hopefully, we are remaining faithful to our new year resolutions (fist pump)! It’s definitely a good idea to channel the positive energy of welcoming the new year and use it to step out of your comfort zone. If you’re looking to explore the Philadelphia culture scene this month, there is definitely something for everyone. Maybe you didn’t get to visit a certain museum, festival, or neighborhood last year – now you have the chance to make it happen!

I have selected a few events that are happening this month so check out the information below. Remember – New Year, New Things!
