Outfest 2013
The largest national coming-out festival in the world celebrates this week. With, at last count, 143 participating vendors and events like a high-heel race and a penis-shaped-bagel-eating contest, you won’t want to miss this all-day extravaganza. Free. Gayborhood. 215.875.9288.

Jeff: Coffins and Cages
Ever wonder what your coffin will look like? Probably not—but not only has artist Jeff envisioned his, he’s conjured up designs for it and will be showing them off—along with an installation of seemingly endless architectural cages and various multi-platform displays playing off the artist’s not-so-subtle interest in confinement and mortality. Through Dec. 6. La Salle University Art Museum, 1900 W. Olney Ave. 215.951.1000.
