The most talked about and exciting black-tie gala in our region is about to stage a return.

2018 Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts Gala is Co-Chaired by
David L. Cohen - Senior Executive Vice President of Comcast Corporation
The Honorable Edward G. Rendell - Former Governor of Pennsylvania

The biennial Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA) begins with a spectacular Gala, which has become a must-attend staple on Philadelphia’s social calendar. This fundraising Gala allows the Kimmel Center to continue the tradition of celebrating artists in our region and bringing unprecedented international artistry to Philadelphia. Proceeds from the PIFA Gala support PIFA, as well as the Kimmel Center’s vital, year-round, free arts education programs for k-12 youth and free community programming to a broad and diverse audience in our city. We hope you’ll join us for a memorable evening, unique performances, and the opportunity to connect with community and business leaders.
