Official event information


Saturday, June 1 - Sunday, June 30, 2024

The City of Philadelphia is pleased to launch our eighth year of celebrating Immigrant Heritage Month! This year’s theme is “Stories Untold: Amplifying Immigrant Voices in Philadelphia.”

Immigrant Heritage Month uses the power of storytelling to highlight immigrant communities and their personal experiences. Throughout the month, the Office of Immigrant Affairs will promote many community events, including musical performances, educational programming, business information sessions, food tastings, film screenings, and health resources.

This national celebration offers residents the opportunity to explore their heritage and celebrate the shared diversity that forms the unique story of our country. It’s also a chance to highlight the important role of immigration in the United States and recognize the many contributions made by immigrants.
