The 14th annual DesignPhiladelphia will take place Wednesday, Oct. 3, through Saturday, Oct. 13.
Across the city, there will be panels, workshops and exhibitions bringing artists, designers, architects and design-savvy Philadelphians together.
In total, there will be more than 100 events, but one that you don't want to miss is the kick-off party. This year, it will take place at Bok Bar, which offers Instagram-worthy views of the city.
There will be beer from Yards and Peroni, spirits by Philadelphia Distilling, dumplings from The Pierogie Kitchen, Hawaiian food from Poi Dog Philly and snacks from 12th Street Catering.
Tickets are $75 – or $30 if you're a student.
Before the party begins, ticket holders can attend a 4 p.m. keynote address in the building's auditorium by Paula Scher of Pentagram. She's considered one of the most influential graphic designers in the world.
