Philadelphia has always played a major role in hosting previous national anniversaries from 1876, 1926, and 1976, and soon to be 2026, with the 250th anniversary. With each one, special buildings or monuments were constructed as legacy projects such as Memorial Hall, the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and the African American Museum of Philadelphia. Hosted by PHILADELPHIA250, the nonprofit leading the City of Philadelphia’s 250th plans, this free and family-friendly event invites the people of Philadelphia – especially its youngest residents – to help shape the programs and experiences that will serve as our city’s legacy for the 250th and help build a stronger, more resilient city for all. PHILADELPHIA250 will be unveiling the semi-finalists for its Leave a Legacy grant program, a public call for community-sourced projects that will strengthen Philadelphia’s neighborhoods in 2026 and beyond. The event will feature live music, kid-friendly activities, 250th idea collection and more.

It’s not too late to submit your idea to Leave a Legacy, the public call for project submissions—by the people, and for all people—through May 20, 2022. Selected projects will receive a portion of the PHILADELPHIA250 Leave a Legacy seed fund $125,000 supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and The Philadelphia Foundation.
