Host an Event

Every year we partner with over 100 designers, firms, organizations, and companies to produce the DesignPhiladelphia Festival. All throughout the Festival, event hosts open their spaces to the public for workshops, talks, receptions, and exhibitions.

Registration for the 2017 Festival will be open March 1-June 1. 

Looking to host an event, but need some assistance? We can help you talk through your ideas, find a collaborator, or a space to host a program. Click here to get in touch with Sharon Leshner for more info.


Join our loyal sponsors who have supported DesignPhiladelphia in the past and connect with thousands of people here in Philadelphia. We offer sponsorships that range from $1k-$50k. Click here to download the 2017 Sponsorship Packet, or click here to contact Kristie Bergey for more info.



We need your help to make the festival a success! DesignPhiladelphia volunteers help distribute marketing materials, get the word out about the festival using social media, support event hosts during the festival, and collect demographic information from participants during the festival. More details will be available in July 2017.
