PTW19 Kickoff Festival in Old City

This year’s kickoff aims to blend the best of Philly Tech Week 2019 with a 27-year-old tradition of arts and culture in Philadelphia known as First Friday where galleries traditionally open their doors and the sidewalks fill with people looking to see the newest collections.

Meet technologists, artists and entrepreneurs alike through this neighborhood-wide, one-night activation.

MAJOR KEY ALERT: Our pals in the cloud, Linode, will open up their gorgeous space at 3rd and Arch streets to be the official host for the Philly Tech Week 2019 presented by Comcast Kickoff Festival in Old City!

Looking for art to hang in your office or home, and support the local creative community at the same time? Join our “Buy local art” challenge and help us reach the goal of $10,000 of local art purchased by the tech community during Philly Tech Week 2019 presented by Comcast.

We are creating a beautiful map of the PTW19 Kickoff Festival footprint featuring the companies and organizations that wish to be open and a part of the event by being represented on the map as a location open for some period of time to the public between 5 to 10 p.m. that first Friday night in May.

WANT IN? Apply here.
