Due to the recent escalation of events related to COVID-19 we have opted to cancel this evening’s Purim: Party Like a Queen per with Governor Wolf’s recommendation. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and hope to dance through the galleries with you all at a later date.If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to davinica@tribe12.org

Purim, or the Feast of Lots, is a joyous holiday that recounts the protection of Jewish peoples from a threatened massacre during the Persian period. Now, Purim is considered by some to be feminist holiday, due to the ancient queens that played major roles within the historic events. Join the Penn Museum as we celebrate this festive occasion with a queer twist! Guests will enjoy special highlight tours of the galleries, crafts, music, and end the night with a bang: a costume contest!
