Quaker's Corner Fan Zone
Set up conveniently inside the stadium in the Southwest corner of Franklin Field, Quaker's Corner Fan Zone is a fun activity area for the whole family open at all home football games. Quaker's Corner opens 60 minutes before every home game and is the perfect spot to meet friends before the game. There are different activities for fans of all ages including music, inflatable games, temporary tattoos, merchandise, concessions, the Helmet Car, a marketing table with posters and pocket schedules, and of course Quaker himself will be there to greet you. Get ready for the game at Quaker's Corner!
When available, Quaker makes public apperances for community and/or private parties upon request for Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. Appearances in other locations are possible please contact Coach Neary to make suitable arrangements.
(Please note that Quaker is not typically available during the dates of May 15-August 31 of each year.)

Appearances will generally be confirmed within 5-7 business days.
