Philly 2026

Submit Your Ideas to DAG's Philadelphia 2026 Wish List!

Inspired by our conversation with Michael Newmuis, Philadelphia's 2026 Director, the DAG Steering Committee has begun a “wish list” for 2026. To improve the depth and quality of that list we want to expand it to include your ideas, big or small, aspirational or imminently achievable.


Once our list is complete on May 31st, we will post it in its entirety for review and voting (best idea, most achievable idea, best in each category, etc.)


Who knows: Your idea might be part of Philadelphia’s future!

DAG wants to hear from you!

Your opinion is valuable to us. Help us make DAG the best it can be.

We want to hear about your experience with our programming and events, and your opinions on how we can make that experience better and more engaging. Please consider sharing your thoughts in this brief survey.
