Yeahhhh – it’s that time of year again… to take a break and enjoy some holiday cheer!

Okay, most of us can’t really take a month-long break, and sometimes it’s not so easy to find the holiday cheer, with the hustle and bustle (and shopping and hassles) – but thankfully, Philadelphia knows how to spread the holiday spirit, and there are many great upcoming events to bring the joy of the season to even the Scroogey-est among us.

Here are just a few upcoming holiday events that are sure to warm hearts even in the coldest of winter weather…

Client Testimonials

Check out what our clients have to say about their experience with us.


My company had an international artist picked up at JFK and dropped off in Philadelphia, and the artist had the best time. The driver kept in touch with me throughout the day, so we could plan for arrival, and our artist had the most wonderful experience with the driver. That’s really astounding considering our artist had just gotten off a red-eye from across the world. Thank you so very much!

Meredith S.


Our driver arrived a few minutes early, was professional, courteous and got us to the airport for our early morning flight without any problem! The car was immaculate and comfortable. I especially liked the 24 hour and 2 hour trip notification that was sent via email. It was reassuring to know they were following up. I highly recommend Corporate Sedan for any transportation needs!
