For the first time ever, Pennsylvania based company, Gilson Snow will bring their annual summer outdoor festival and rail jam to Philadelphia. Gilson Summer Snow Day will pop-up at Xfinity Live! on Saturday, July 16th with real snow, snowboarding competitions, ice carving, ski artist showcase, apres-ski lodge, live music, 50+ drink samples, games and the Knoebels Kids Zone with rock climbing, bounce house and more.
“We’re proud to be coming up on our 10 year anniversary of starting this company in Pennsylvania,” said Gilson Snow CEO and Co-Founder Nicholas Gilson. “The Susquehanna River Valley has been an amazing place to live, work and grow our company. After meeting the folks at Xfinity Live! In South Philly, and seeing their amazing venue – we knew we had the perfect location for our first Summer Snow Day away from our facility.”
Gilson Summer Snow Day began in 2017 at Gilson’s headquarters located in New Berlin, Pennsylvania and was designed as a way of giving back to the local community. Over the years the event has grown to the point where Gilson is ready to expand their Summer Snow Day experience by hosting two events this year: The first Summer Snow Day of 2022 will be hosted at XFinity Live! located in the heart of South Philadelphia on Saturday, July 16th. The second will be hosted as the 6th annual original Gilson Summer Snow Day at their headquarters located in the Susquehanna River Valley on Saturday, August 13th.
