Your Comprehensive Guide to Navigating Philly During the DNC (Plus, Where to Find Those Donkeys)
As you may have heard, the Democratic National Convention is coming to town. And regardless of political affiliation, Philadelphians are pretty excited.
To recognize the historic event (the last time the DNC came to Philly was in 1948!), Philadelphia magazine’s advertising department collaborated with the Philadelphia 2016 DNC Host Committee to bring you, dear readers, the ultimate guide to political festivities during the week of the DNC. Because, while you won’t be able to gain admittance the Convention itself (it’s for credentialed guests only), there are still tons of public events and activities scheduled, ranging from family-friendly museum pop-ups to watch parties.
As such, we culled them into a mobile-friendly, downloadable guide, and now you can get your own free copy.
One of the activities that you’ve probably heard distinct hubbub about is the roving art exhibit “Donkeys Around Town.” Today through September 9th, 57 fiberglass donkeys, each painted by a local artist, will be on display at local landmarks citywide. Starting July 21st, to encourage folks to hit the pavement and see the donkeys themselves (and perhaps inspire a little friendly competition!), there’s an app that will help plan your route, log your findings on social media and earn sweet prizes (download the guide to learn how!).
Toggle through the map below to find all 57 donkeys. Good luck and don’t forget to share your photos using #DonkeysAroundTown!
