Security Information

Penn’s Landing security will once again be checking backpacks, and this caused an uncomfortable situation at the front gate in 2013.   In 2014 Penn’s Landing diverted a huge portion of the crowd to the waterfront and the North gate, which caused quite a lineup.  Keep an eye out for our volunteers selling wristbands on the street as that will cut out the crowd scene at the Festival.  We will have separate isles for those without backpacks and bags so you can enter the Festival quickly. Those with bags will be checked, and it will cause you some delay. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but it is for the safety of our community. If you enter from either the north or south parking lots, your wait wshould be less as well. Those crossing I-95 via the Market Street overpass will be urged to descent the steps into the parking lot and the north entrance.
