Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room



Held annually around National Coming Out Day, Philadelphia’s OutFest is the world’s largest coming-out event, and it comes in the form of an old-fashioned block party. Restaurants and bars throw open their doors to host street-side cookouts and dance parties in The Gayborhood.
