Official event information


Saturday, Sept. 10 - Saturday, Sept. 24, 2022

As a Welcoming City, Philadelphia has shown its commitment to this national cause for over six years by coordinating events and programming throughout the city. This year, the Office of Immigrant Affairs (OIA) and its partners are curating events that touch on the national theme of “Where We Belong.” We invite you to join us in these diverse, inclusive, and thought-provoking discussions among our residents.

Welcoming Week is a national initiative developed in partnership with Welcoming America. By encouraging dialogue and forging relationships between immigrants, refugees, and U.S.-born citizens, this initiative builds common ground in Philadelphia’s communities.

This event is co-sponsored by the Office of Arts, Culture, and the Creative Economy.
