You’re invited to join artists, designers, architects, and design-savvy Philadelphians to celebrate Philadelphia’s love for design. Join DesignPhiladelphia as they take over Bok and kickoff the 14th annual DesignPhiladelpia festival.
Installations? Yep. Food and beverage? Uh-huh. Design trendsetters and experimenters? Check.
Mingle with Philly’s design elite and enjoy refreshing brews by Yards Brewery and Peroni, premium spirits by Philadelphia Distilling, homemade sweet and savory dumplings by The Pierogie Kitchen, plant-based honest eats from honeygrow, Hawaii-style street food and desserts by Poi Dog Philly, and flavorful drinks and snacks from 12th Street Catering.
Oh and um, have you been to Bok Bar? Views for days.
Tickets to the party include light hor d’oeurves and complimentary beverages. 

You’re granted free access to Paula Scher’s keynote right before the Kickoff Party at 4:15 PM in the Bok Auditorium.
