We’re a city filled with firsts. And there’s a first time for everything.

PHILADELPHIA250 is leading a first of its kind, community-powered commemoration—designed by and with Philadelphians—for all people.

Everyone is welcome.

Whether you’re a dreamer or a doer, a change-agent or a rainmaker, now’s the time to make your own mark on the 250th anniversary of American independence.

Our 250th Opportunity

The 250th provides an opportunity that Philadelphia hasn’t seen in 50 years.

With this milestone moment upon us, we can deliver tangible and positive community impact and work toward becoming a better city and a better world.

To make our mark and create change, together.


Your voice. Our impact together.


By the People, For all People

Together we’re leading a grassroots movement that’s by, of, and for all of us, all across Philadelphia.

Our city’s diverse patchwork of neighborhoods and vibrant open spaces, along with our rich cultural and heritage assets, will be on full display in 2026.

Join us now.
