Events at schmidt's

Throughout its lifespan, the Schmidt’s Commons has been home to thousands of events, small and large, local and national. This summer we launched an activation calendar for the Commons, filled with events geared toward our residents and Philly locals.

The Piazza at Schmidt’s
This 80,000 SF event space sits at the heart of the Commons, and is available for rent. At the southern end, the 80-year-old rehabilitated Schmidt’s building, now home to WeWork, serves as a backdrop for live events. Attached to it is a 400 SF LED screen, and an 800 SF permanent stage. Please contact Krystal Souvanlasy for inquiries.
