PIFA 2018

PIFA 2018

Save the date!

The Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA) returns in 2018 with 10 days of collaborative and innovative artistic performances.

Festival: June 1– June 10, 2018
Gala: May 31, 2018


The centerpiece of the Festival will be the return of Trans Express, the French performance troupe that PIFA lovers will remember from their amazing spectacle during the 2011 Festival when more than 200,000 visitors packed the Avenue of the Arts to witness the ‘jaw-dropping sensation.’ The group will bring the World Premiere of Crystal Palace – a 30-foot human chandelier with more than 50 live performers and dancers. Crystal Palace will artistically recreate the history of dance – from The Waltz and Tango, to the Charleston, the Swing and Disco – through air acrobats and integrated dance groups.
