April 10, 2020

King of Prussia, PA (April 10, 2020) – King of Prussia District is proud to debut KOP Quaranteam Virtual Events, a series of online events and contests to keep the community safe and entertained during this time of social distancing. From all-levels live workouts with KOP fitness instructors, to how-to lifestyle videos with KOP businesses, to live performances with the region’s talented musicians, KOP Quaranteam Virtual Events are free and available via King of Prussia District’s Facebook page or the free platform Zoom. “We are excited to delve into the world of virtual programming, and see this as a win-win way to support local talent, while reminding the public that they can still have fun and support the KOP community while staying safe,” said Eric Goldstein, Executive Director of King of Prussia District.

KOP Quaranteam Virtual Events will run the month of April and will be extended as long as the stay-at-home order is in effect. The lineup includes:
