Students can visit some of Philly's museums, like the Philadelphia Museum of Art, for free during CollegeFest.

College students are invited to Campus Philly's CollegeFest at Dilworth Park in front of City Hall on Saturday, Sept. 7.

The free festival, running from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., includes outdoor games, live music and giveaways from local companies. More than 5,000 people are expected to attend.

The event is an excellent opportunity to meet other students from all over the Philadelphia region, but there's also another great reason to register for CollegeFest.
