The Philadelphia Collection is a week-long series of fashion and style events, founded by the City of Philadelphia, the Center City District and the Philadelphia Retail Marketing Alliance, occurring this September.

SECOND: Thursday, October 10 through Sunday, October 13, The Oval will take on a seasonal theme, as “Harvest at The Oval, The New Shape of Fall.” Each day will offer fall-themed community programming, ranging from autumn food and beverage vendors, to a PHAIR open air market, to a petting zoo, costume party and much more.

The Oval is an initiative of Philadelphia Parks and Recreation in partnership with the Fairmount Park Conservancy. It is made possible thanks to the support of the William Penn Foundation and the City of Philadelphia.
