About “Budweiser Made In America” Festival in Philadelphia
Slated for its third year in Philadelphia, the “Budweiser Made In America” Festival will once again attract thousands of visitors and festival-goers to the City of Brotherly Love on Labor Day weekend 2014. After the inaugural two-day music festival in 2012, Mayor Michael A. Nutter announced that the event generated at least $10 million in economic impact for the city’s economy. Additionally, the “Budweiser Made In America” Festival benefits local United Way organizations with the goal of having a positive impact on the host community. As a result of the 2012 festival, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey invested more than $350,000 into education and workforce development initiatives. The City of Philadelphia is well-positioned to host the festival once again in 2014: the city is strategically located on the east coast, boasts world-class transportation and amenities, and local officials have experience producing and accommodating big events like the annual Gore-Tex Philadelphia Marathon, the annual Wawa Welcome America Festival for the 4th of July, and the upcoming World Meeting of Families 2015.
