Fun in Philly This March

The weather is getting warmer and that means more outdoor events and parties are going to fill your calendars. From festivals to flower shows, there are plenty of ways to spring into fun this season near Royal Athena.


Bourbon Blue Mardi Gras 2019 — Let loose at Bourbon Blue for its annual Mardi Gras celebration, just a 10-minute drive from Royal Athena. The annual event will feature two premium open bars, ranging from two hours for $20 or three hours for $30. Plus, take part in the usual festivities of beads, masks, live music, prizes and more.


Manayunk Food Tour — Foodies will be in heaven when the Philly Food Tours kick off in March. The Manayunk version features more than eight tastings from the likes of Marchiano’s Bakery, Sorrentino’s, Han Dynasty, Tubby Robot Ice Cream Factory and more. March dates are already starting to sell out but luckily this event runs Saturdays and Sundays through November so you can fill your plate as many times as you want throughout the year.


Philadelphia Flower Show — Kick off the spring season with the Philadelphia Flower Show. The Pennsylvania Convention Center will once again become an artistic masterpiece through landscape displays, horticulture demonstrations, gardening presentations, exhibits and other special events. As part of the “Flower Power” theme, “the world’s leading floral and garden designers will explore how flowers convey a wide range of emotions and messages in a universal language that transcends cultures and borders.”
