Philadelphia Auto Show Behind The Scenes, Photos & A Link to My Philly Mag Column

Last Friday was the annual Philadelphia Auto Show Black Tie Tailgate Party. Nearly 4,000 people attend the event, which is held in the new section of the Pennsylvania Convention Center. It’s always so much fun to walk through the grand doorway that is located on Broad Street. All proceeds benefit the Division of Neonatology at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

 After guests enter, they are ushered onto a red carpet where they get their photos taken, and later are able to pick up for a keepsake.

 The auto show is gigantic, they give you a nice map of the floor when you come in to find your favorite wheels. If you forget to grab one there are maps on the floor.

Check out the Off Road Excitement at the Philadelphia Auto Show is happening at the Phila Auto Show. The Camp Jeep experience features obstacles that simulate the capability standards of Jeep vehicles, with ground clearance, traction, stability, articulation and suspension, allowing consumers to experience Jeep vehicles to the fullest. The Jeep test track includes logs, stumps, an angled drive-over and other Jeep Trail Rated terrains.
