Philly Quizzo: Test your local knowledge in the online quiz

24 trivia questions about Philadelphia’s past, present and future.


How well do you know Philadelphia?

The new monthly Billy Penn Philly Quizzo Night tests the limits of your local knowledge, with three rounds of questions themed after this city in the categories of Philly Past, Philly Present and Philly Future.

In late May, the uCity PHS Pop Up Garden hosted us for the first event, and around 70 people in 14 different teams battled for the chance to win tickets to Philly Beer Week Opening Tap.

Congratulations go to team Crumb Bums, which came away with such a high score that for a little bit, we were certain they were cheating. After watching closely to see if they were sneaking onto their phones, we determined they weren’t — they were just that good with Philadelphia trivia.

We turned the questions from that night into an online quiz. Without using Google, can you beat their near-perfect score?

Pick your the answers in the three sections below, then click “Submit” and scroll up to “View Score” to see how you did.

(If the form embedded below gives you trouble, you can access the quiz directly here.)

And more good news: Philly Quizzo went so well, we’re doing it again in June. Look out for an announcement in the next few weeks. We hope you’ll join us.
