Made In America Festival
Last year’s two-day “Made in America” festival during the Labor Day weekend drew thousands, and according to city officials provided a big boost to the local economy with hotel and restaurant bookings.
The total cost of the Made in America concert is now available from Mayor Nutter’s office, and it looks like taxpayers came out on top.
How soon? “Very shortly is, literally, very shortly,” the mayor says.
One national media watcher says the impact of the two-day concert was actually not very big for Philadelphia’s image — though that could change later.
Throughout day two of the Made In America festival, fans had eyes peeled for the event’s spokesman and headliner, Jay-Z.

In the first-of-its-kind Made in America Music Festival up to 50,000 people packed the Ben Franklin Parkway, but over the last 24 hours, police have scaled back the number of officers.
The two-day music festival is taking over the parkway and putting Philadelphia at the center of the music universe.
The true economic impact of the Made In America concert won’t be known for a few weeks, but the concert is already proving profitable for hotels in the city.
The event aims to “embody the American spirit,” but many of the performers also embody Philadelphia’s spirit.
