Philadelphia Welsh Week
August 27 - September 4Various
There’s a warm welcome for everyone at Philadelphia Welsh Week, Aug 27 – Sep 4, a celebration of three centuries of the rich Welsh history in Philadelphia, including music, film, seminars, books, genealogy, language, and history. The Welsh are world-famous for their singing and two concerts of Welsh music will take place at The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts – a traditional male voice choir and a concert of contemporary Welsh music. The Doubletree Hotel will host screenings, seminars, theatre, a Penderyn Welsh Whisky Masterclass, and an opportunity to buy Welsh crafts and enjoy delicious Welsh cakes and tea. Wales salutes Ukraine at a free screening of the biographical thriller movie Mr. Jones at the Philadelphia Film Center while history meets family fun at Fort Mifflin Welsh Tract Day. Several bars and restaurants in Philadelphia will serve Welsh dishes and cocktails during the week and Barnes and Noble will feature a display of Welsh books. The festival closes with Welsh hymn-singing at its finest at the Church of the Redeemer in Bryn Mawr. A full list of events and activities including both free and ticketed events is available at www.philawelshweek.org.
