If you're looking for a fun activity on a budget, Penn offers a wide range of events that are free to the public and/or the Penn community.

Please note that students, partners, and dependents may need to show a PennCard for admission and that some events may be open or free only to Penn students. Advance registration may also be required. Check in advance for details.

This will be the last semester that we will be updating the site with campus events, but we hope this feature has been useful to you and your family!
