The Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA) 2013!

In the spring of 2011 PIFA inspired a city to join together for 25 days of artistic presentations featuring more than 150 arts partners. From high flying acrobatics to innovative performance, PIFA generated millions of dollars for the city and touched the hearts of hundreds of thousands of people.

And it’s coming back!

Join us March 28 – April 27, 2013 as PIFA, a Kimmel Center production, returns to Philadelphia asking, “If you had a time machine…”

Where would you go? What would you do? Would you explore events that changed our world? Witness moments where new ideas were born? Go back to graduation and wear a different outfit?

Through the lenses of art, collaboration, and innovation - PIFA 2013 takes you on a journey. And that journey starts now.
