Things to Do in Greater Philadelphia for Memorial Day Weekend 2022

The unofficial start to summer, Memorial Day weekend (May 27-30, 2022) marks the time when we mentally check out for a while, life moves a little slower and, according to some, it’s socially acceptable to wear white.


Over the long weekend, museumgoers can pay tribute to those who’ve served our country from its earliest days at the Museum of the American Revolution and the National Constitution Center.


Greater Philadelphia plays host to a bevy of warm-weather festivities like the Devon Horse Show, Twilight in the Gardens at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens and Spring in LOVE: A Multicultural Marketplace Experience in LOVE Park, as well as fireworks shows at the Mann Center and Sesame Place.


And the city’s open-daily attractions like Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest, the Rothman Orthopaedics Roller Rink at Dilworth Park and Spruce Street Harbor Park welcome visitors all weekend long.


Make the most of the long weekend by booking the Visit Philly Overnight Hotel Package, which includes free hotel parking (up to $100), two untimed tickets to the world-premiere Harry Potter: The Exhibition at The Franklin Institute and a bed you don’t have to make.
