This Philadelphia Meetup page coordinates the series of meetup events in Philadelphia and the Philadelphia metropolitan area.

Meetings can focus on the projects of the Philadelphia section of Wikimedia New York City, the local chapter for Wikipedians/Wikimedians in the Philadelphia metropolitan area.

Wikimedia New York City officially serves communities in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. Local committees and/or new chapters across the Northeast are also anticipated in future.

The seventh Philly Wikipedia Meetup will happen on March 15, 2009. It is hosted by WikiProject Philadelphia. This will keep with our stated goal of having one of these events every few months.

The meetup is being organized by mblumber and Wknight8111. If you would like to help, please contact us.


We will be meeting at Drexel's Creese Student Center, between 32nd and 33rd streets on Chestnut at 3pm.

Dinner will be at Bucca Di Beppo, 258 South 15th St at 6pm. I'm going to tell them six people, but can make it a larger number.

We will be meeting in the first floor lobby. Please enter the doors facing chestnut street on the eastern end of the building (closest to 32nd street)



  • Discuss the possibility of having a more formalized group structure
  • Wikipedia-related projects around Philadelphia
    • Are we interested in contacting the Art Museum to do something like what NY is doing?
    • Is anyone interested in expanding our coverage of the SEPTA system, both the subways and regional rail?
    • We could also work to expand the coverage of the National Historic Landmarks in Philadelphia
  • Enjoy a tasty meal (optional)
