First, one time for getting outside!  Secondly, the Roots and Live Nation Urban have come together for the return of “Roots Picnic” for the first time in-person since 2019.  The 2022 Roots Picnic 2 day festival is said to be a love letter to Philadelphia. Something like a “Thank you” for supporting the Roots for 15 years.

I’m going to the Roots Picnic in Philly again this year and I’m super excited.  I want to share some security measures that apply to the Roots Picnic at Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing.

I’ve been to a few concerts and there are rules that I wasn’t aware of.  The rules affect many concertgoers when trying to enter the venues.  For example, I wasn’t affected but my friend who attended a concert with me had to throw away her umbrella.  She was very mad.  So before attending the Roots Picnic here is a list of do’s and don’ts for the event.

There are several ways, but the fastest and easiest is to take the Market-Frankford subway line from 30th & Market (just across the street from the train station) eastbound (towards Frankford Avenue) down to Front & Spring Garden.  However, this will put you about a block or so from Festival Pier.
