Philadelphia is the First World Heritage City in the U.S. 

Many opportunities come with the designation of Philadelphia as World Heritage City: tourism, new businesses and investment, and preservation of our historic and cultural assets.

260-plus member cities of the OWHC will celebrate their uniqueness and common bond.

Join us on September 8, 2016, with the Philadelphia World Heritage Committee to a dinner in celebration of Solidarity Day of the World Heritage Cities!
