Update: This article formerly stated that Arcade @ Dilworth would kick off Friday, April 17. Due to inclement weather, the event has been rescheduled for Saturday, April 18, 6-9 p.m. and the article has been updated to reflect this.

We need your help. We can’t kick off Philly Tech Week 2015 presented by Comcast at Dilworth Park Saturday from 6-9 p.m. without you.
Celebrate technology and innovation at the Arcade @ Dilworth event. Check out the App Arcade, Maker Corner, listen to live music and more. This event is free and open to the public — and also family friendly! You can purchase an official Philly Tech Week T-shirt at the event for $10 and pick up a #PTW15 print magazine.
Don’t forget to visit the Rosa Blanca concession stand and beer garden (food and brews are pay-as-you-go, prices are $3 and up).
Dilworth Park is conveniently located near many SEPTA lines and public transportation is encouraged. Coming on two wheels? We’ll have free bike valets courtesy of Philadelphia Bicycle Rescue.
