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 Philadelphia’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 stories, 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.
