Men and women dressed in the country's colors of red, blue and yellow converged on Independence Mall about noon and sang the country's national anthem.
A few passers-by took notice of the demonstration and joined the protesters despite having little knowledge of Venezuela's situation.
"The world's a bigger place and I don't know everything that's going around in the world," David Rider said. "But we were just interested in figuring out more so we decided to check it out."
Unrest in Venezuela has been escalating among those who oppose President Nicolas Maduro's policies. Maduro took office - some have argued illegitimately - after former leader Hugo Chavez died of cancer last year. Critics of Maduro blame him for the country's failing economy and soaring crime rate.
The protests in Venezuela have been largely led by students and opposition leaders. Conflict has also been fueled by suspicions there that the government has attempted to limit media coverage of the ongoing demonstrations.
"Venezuelans just can't stand this anymore. People took the streets peacefully and the government are repressing them with violence," said Maria Romero, a participant of yesterday's protest in Philadelphia.
The crowd, which amassed to around 50, mostly learned of the demonstration through Facebook and Twitter, organizer Nelly Jimenez Arevalo said.
"We sent out invitations to every Venezuelan we knew through social media," Arevalo said. "We don't want to see Venezuela fail. We're here, but we want our people to know that we are supporting them."
