View over 100 bronze plaques as you journey through five decades of music history. The Walk of Fame is your passport to Philadelphia's music contributions to the world.
The Walk
Established in 1986, the Walk of Fame is the creation of the Philadelphia Music Alliance, a community-based not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Phildelphia’s rich musical legacy, supporting the current music scene and mentoring the next generation of music makers.
The Music
Blues, Gospel and Soul, to Pop, Rock, the Classics and Jazz, they’re all here on the dazzling Avenue of the Arts.
Take a picture next to a plaque immortalizing one of Philly’s music greats. Live their stores, thrill to their music and then witness the real thing at any of the numerous live venues where Philadelphia’s soundtrack plays every night of the week.
The Experience
Experience the Walk of Fame on the Avenue of the Arts in the heart of the city's world-class cultural, entertainment and dining district.
You’ll find the head marker for the Philadelphia Walk of Fame at the southwest corner of Broad and Walnut Streets. Head south to the last plaque (presently two blocks) and then up the other side back to Walnut Street.
