Philadelphia Open Studio Tours is the region's largest annual tour of visual artist studios. Each October, this program spans 20 unique neighborhoods, features over 300 participants, engages audiences topping 30,000, and puts Philadelphia's professional artists "on the map" for locals and tourists alike. As the city's largest festival of visual art, the Philadelphia Open Studio Tours includes self-guided tours of studios, workshops, gallery exhibitions, demonstrations, artist talks, receptions and guided tours.

The program provides the public a rare opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of visual artists at work in an approachable, festive and easy-to-navigate tour. The Studio Tours provide a chance for the public to engage with Philadelphia's entire arts community from a new perspective – and based on an individual's own specific interests.

No other program in or around Philadelphia consistently brings such an intimate and diverse cultural experience to the community free of charge and across such a large geographic area.
