Top Things To Do in Philly this Week: Festivals, Farm Fun, and Park Happenings

As Philly families acclimate to the routine of school schedules and cooler weather, so too does the Mommy Poppins Philadelphia events calendar adapt to the change in season. Kids and grown-ups throughout the Delaware Valley can anticipate plenty of apple picking, conquering corn mazes, and playtime in the pumpkin patch this September.

This week's list of the best things to do in Philly this weekend and next week includes in-person fall and Halloween festivals, as well as virtual events happening across the country at top children's museums and performances from children's musicians. As Philadelphia-area venues continue to offer more family events, we're constantly updating our events calendar, so be sure to check it regularly.

And if you're looking for fun classes for kids (virtual and in-person), tutoring, and pod support, stop in at at our online Back-to-School Fair with live sessions happening this week!

As a reminder, be sure to confirm with venues for the latest updates regarding COVID-19 protocol and procedures. Almost all locations ask guests to wear a mask and observe social distancing guidelines.
