The Philly Show is staying put—at least for the rest of 2018.
Show organizers say the tri-annual show’s final event of 2018 will return to the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center November 30-December 2. This time, however, it’ll be in a larger hall.
Normally held at the Valley Forge Resort and Casino, the September show was moved to the Expo Center after flooding impacted the resort’s convention facility. The show had to downsize a bit because of the smaller size at Hall D of the Expo Center. The resort has since opted to undergo a full renovation and while the hotel remains open, the convention center won’t be available for the upcoming show either.
This time, however, organizers say they have managed to secure the 75,000 square-foot Hall B at the Expo Center, allowing for space to hold 170+ vendor booths. The larger size room also allows for an expanded signing area with more seating and a full concession stand.
The Expo Center is approximately six miles from the usual facility and actually served as the Philly Show’s home several years ago.
Show hours are Friday, November 30 from 2 PM – 8 PM; Saturday, December 1 from 9 AM to 5 PM and Sunday, December 2 from 9 AM – 3 PM.
Tickets are $8 per day or $18 for a weekend pass.
Several members of the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles are scheduled to sign autographs including Jason Kelce, Timmy Jernigan and Brent Celek. Also appearing will be a group of current and former Phillies stars including Mike Schmidt, Pete Rose, Rhys Hoskins and 2008 World Series MVP Cole Hamels as well as Pro Football Hall of Famer Tony Dorsett. Former boxing champ Larry Holmes will be signing autographs and taking pictures over the weekend.
