Philadelphia was the first city to ever host the NFL draft in 1936, which means the return this year is even more monumental. From April 27-29, Philly will come alive with fans and festivities for the 82nd NFL Draft, to be hosted on the Ben Franklin Parkway! Boasting nearly 1,500,000 square feet of activities, the event is set to be the largest NFL fan event ever produced.
The events are all free and open to the public, with the exception of the draft itself. Download the Fan Mobile Pass app for standby tickets to the draft, and you might be able to experience the draft firsthand and gain access to certain activities. There’s everything from a 100-yard zipline and a virtual reality station that will get you on an NFL field to an autograph stage for getting signatures from your favorite players. There will even be a training camp setup for you to test your skills.
You definitely don’t want to miss out, so gather up some friends from 31 Brewerytown and head over on Thursday!
