Family Fall Festival

October 29, 2023, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Family Fall Festival

Free for kids in costume and their families.

Join us at Eastern State Penitentiary for some fall-themed family fun!

Trick-or-treat inside the penitentiary, then explore Eastern State's history and legacy with the help of a special scavenger hunt designed with children ages 8-13 and their caregivers in mind. From 1:30 to 2:30 pm, Ms. Mary, Children's Librarian at the Free Library of Philadelphia, will lead a Halloween-themed story time. Plus, enjoy art activities, music, games, relay races, and more!

Kids in costumes (and their families) receive free admission. No reservations necessary.
