Garden Jams

On Wednesdays in July, We Jam

Penn Museum’s outdoor summer concert series returns as Garden Jams, a low-key, high-chill, al fresco scene in Stoner Courtyard at the rose-gold hour. Unwind to world music by local Philly bands. Grab small bites and sips from food trucks and a garden bar fully stocked with wine, beer, and non-alcoholic refreshments. Feel free to BYO blanket and picnic essentials (just no alcohol please) and find your spot amid a hidden and historic urban oasis under the sky. Concerts move indoors during inclement weather.

While you’re in between sets...

Cool off inside the Museum. Admission is included with your Garden Jams ticket, and galleries stay open through 8:00 pm.

Hungry for some history? Catch casual pop-up tours of our newest exhibition, Ancient Food and Flavors, led by local high school students on July 26. Starts at 6:30 pm.

Who’s Jamming on July 5?

West Philadelphia Orchestra (WPO) is a brass band inspired by the Romani brass “orkestars” and “fanfares” of Eastern Europe. Known for stellar musicianship and dynamic live shows, the band’s sound is large, loud, and extremely danceable. WPO began as a village band for their neighborhood in 2006, performing at parks, rocking street festivals, and collaborating with community theaters. Their albums WPO in 2008, Live at Tritone in 2012, and Tour de Filli in 2016 are available on and streaming platforms.
