Location: The comfort of your living room!

It’s time to live it up in your living room! This year’s Party in the Yard celebration will look different, but the 2021 PARTY IN THE BOX will not disappoint.

We are excited to bring you an evening that still has all the fun—delicious food and cocktails, entertainment, and more—and celebrates our work supporting families of medically complex children.


Watch our 2021 Party in the Box Virtual Program on Wednesday, May 12 at 6:30 PM.



The 2020 Party in the Yard raised $337,000 to support families in the region who are struggling while caring for a medically fragile child. Our incredible sponsors, guests, donors, and volunteers made the evening possible.

Event History

Fred’s Footsteps held its first spring fundraiser – The Party in the Park – on June 8, 2007 at Franklin Square Park in Philadelphia. The park had recently re-opened following a multi-million dollar rehabilitation by Historic Philadelphia, Inc., and was sparkling with its beautiful Merry-go-round and miniature golf course. After three years in the park, the event moved to Fairmount Park’s Please Touch Museum for four successful years before finding its home at Urban Outfitters, Inc. in the Philadelphia Navy Yard. 2017 marked our fourth year in this incredible, exclusive location. Now appropriately named the Party in the YARD, the event has been deemed by many the most fun event of the season!
