PIFA, inspired by the Kimmel Center¾Philadelphia’s renowned performing arts center¾ is the city and region’s first major international arts festival, celebrating the spirit of collaboration and innovation that characterized Paris from 1910 to 1920. Paris at that time was a center of tremendous creativity and ultimately shaped how we defined the arts throughout the 20th century.
Featuring a feast of music, dance, fashion, fine arts, outdoor events, theater, literature, cuisine and more, the festival will celebrate Philadelphia’s rich and vibrant cultural community. More than 140 of our region’s finest organizations will combine forces to produce more than 30 commissioned works, offer an enticing mix of collaborative programs, and feature a roster of international artists from Paris and beyond.
From classical performances to new works inspired by the avant-garde spirit of that earlier era, from family and children’s programming to cutting-edge dance and music, from captivating productions to renowned French chefs and gravity-defying aerial artists, PIFA is truly a banquet for longtime arts lovers and novices. So this year, pass on the traditional gifts and offer your loved ones, colleagues, and friends a gift they’ll never forget.
