Excellent news: Philadelphia will welcome the Democratic National Convention in July 2016!!
Today, the Democratic National Committee made the official announcement naming Philadelphia as the host city for its 2016 convention, and that’s great news for the City of Brotherly Love.
Philadelphia has not hosted the Democratic National Convention since 1948, and the last major party convention held in Philly was the Republican National Convention in 2000.
The 2016 Democratic National Convention will bring major political pageantry to town, and events will include the Democrats’ formal nomination of the party’s presidential nominee.
The Convention will also shine the national – and international – spotlight on Philadelphia for a full week in summer 2016. And the economic impact of the convention will be in the hundreds of millions.
So, let’s get ready to host the 2016 Democratic National Convention here in the City of Brotherly Love. We’re sure the Founding Fathers would approve.
