Philadelphia, PA – The Philadelphia Marketplace Food & Shops at Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) will host a variety of festive and fun events for travelers this holiday season.

Passengers can get plenty of gift ideas from PHL’s exciting mix of retail merchants. Special gift tables available from 8 a.m.—9 p.m. in the B/C Connector and 8 a.m.—7:30 p.m. in the D/E Connector will showcase favorite gift items outside of storefronts.

For those still having trouble finding that perfect gift, the Food & Shops is also offering a free snowflake pendant necklace from Taxco Sterling to shoppers buying $100 of merchandise or more from any combination of Marketplace retailers. The necklace will be available through December 24, or while supplies last.

Though flying by sleigh rather than plane, Santa will visit PHL’s seven terminals to greet passengers young and old Dec. 1-24 from 4—8 p.m., Dec. 10-24 from 11a.m. —3 p.m. and Dec. 18-24 (B/C Baggage claim only) from 3—6 p.m.

Passengers can also hear Carolers dressed in Victorian finery performing traditional holiday songs throughout the airport on the following dates: Dec. 11 from 1—3 p.m.; Dec. 12 from 2—4 p.m.; Dec. 18 from 2—4 p.m.; Dec. 19 from 5—7 p.m.; Dec. 22 from 3—5 p.m.; and Dec. 23 from 2—4 p.m.

Throughout the month of December, the Food & Shops annual holiday gift wrap will be staffed with Liberty USO volunteers who will wrap gifts purchased from any airport retailer for free. The gift wrap station is open daily from 8 a.m.—9 p.m. in the B/C Connector and 8 a.m.—7:30 p.m. in the D/E Connector through Dec. 24.

The Food & Shops will present a $5,000 donation to the Liberty USO. The community may contribute to the Liberty USO by making donations at the USO office, Terminal A-East, or visiting them online at

“We are proud to support the Liberty USO and the services they provide to military families in our community,” said Clarence LeJeune, President of the Philadelphia Marketplace Food & Shops. “We hope to put PHL passengers in the holiday spirit with our annual gift wrap and other festive activities.”
