Welcome to the St. Christopher’s 10th Annual Virtual Back to School Carnival!

We’re not letting the pandemic cancel our annual celebration – we’re going virtual! For the tenth straight year, we are celebrating summer with a Virtual Back to School Carnival for Philadelphia families. Since the carnival’s inception, the free event has entertained nearly 13,000 children and their families, and provided school supplies to thousands of children. The free event is hosted by St. Christopher’s Center for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs and Drexel University College of Medicine.

Enjoy our one-of-a-kind virtual celebration!

This year’s virtual carnival is now live, with fun online events for kids and families. Check out our carnival tents offering games, entertainment, and more:
