Hillary Clinton’s final rally in Philly: Everything you need to know

Road closures, how to get there, etc.

The stage is currently being set on Independence Mall, where Hillary Clinton, her family, and the Obamas will host the final Democratic rally of the presidential election.

Surrounding roads have been closed since 10 a.m. today, and music is blasting from speakers on the mall as crews set up the stage. Here’s a quick rundown of what you need to know about tonight’s big rally. (But if you plan to attend, first sign up here).

Where is the rally?

It’s at Independence Hall. The entrance is at 4th and Chestnut streets, and expect a airport-like security. The official address is 520 Chestnut Street.

When is the rally?

It’s today, Monday, November 7 at 7:30 p.m., but “doors” open at 4 p.m.

How can I get there?

Now that the strike is over, you can take public transportation. BUT: The 5th street station stop on the Market/Frankford line is not running due to the rally, so get off at the 8th Street or 2nd Street stops and walk to 4th and Chestnut.

What are the road closures?

  • Market Street, from 4th to 7th Street
  • 5th Street-Arch to Market Street
  • 6th Street-Arch to Chestnut Street

What can/can’t I bring?

Sorry, no homemade signs. Also, no umbrellas, large bags, alcohol, weapons, food, drink, or noisemakers. There will be water at the event.

Where should I stand?

The stage is set up on the mall in front of the National Constitution Center, facing Independence Hall. It’s expected to get crowded, quick, so keep that in mind.

How long will this take?

It’s only scheduled to run for one hour. In addition to the Clintons and Obamas, Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen will perform.
