PHILADELPHIA, PA – The Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee for the Democratic National Convention today conducted a press tour with Governor Ed Rendell and Melissa Fitzgerald, who played Carol Fitzpatrick in The West Wing, highlighting the great diversity of exhibits to be displayed at seven different locations throughout PoliticalFest.
PoliticalFest is being held at seven different locations throughout the city from Friday July 22nd through Wednesday the 27th.
Fitzgerald told PHL17, “Political Fest happened in 2000 when the RNC was here and my mom ran it. I came as an audience member and I found it to be thrilling. It was really a celebration of the history of our country and of politics in America and I can’t think of a more fitting place to launch this than the National Constitution Center.”
Politicalfest is a festival celebrating United States history, politics, and the road to the White House, will highlight the contributions made by important figures and movements since the nation’s founding. These exhibits will be on display at each of the seven PoliticalFest locations and will create a fun, inclusive, and educational experience for residents, delegates, and members of the media. PoliticalFest will run July 22-27th, open 10am-6pm daily.
