World Heritage Week 2023

Posted by Global Philadelphia Association on May 23, 2023

World Heritage Week is a celebration of the World Heritage City Designation of Philadelphia. The last Thursday of May is set as World Heritage Day by the city council.

In 2016, Mayor Jim Kenney created Philadelphia World Heritage Day on the last Thursday of May to celebrate Philadelphia’s World Heritage City Designation. Today, we celebrate World Heritage Week with a selection of events to highlight Philadelphia’s international heritages and communities.

This week is a collaborative celebration featuring valued community partners, the Office of the City Representative, and GPA-hosted events.
