Wawa Hoagie Day
Celebrate Wawa Welcome America! with 5 tons of hoagies
Thursday, June 30, 2016
One of the tastier events taking place during Wawa Welcome America!, the 24th annual Wawa Hoagie Day features a whopping 5 tons of hoagies and plenty of happy visitors.
Hungry Philadelphians and tourists are invited to the lawn outside the Independence Visitor Center on Independence Mall to enjoy a free hoagie, courtesy of Wawa.
The event serves as part of Wawa’s salute to the members of the military as well as fire and police departments. Enjoy performances from the USO Show Troupe and a special appearance by Food Network Chef Robert Irvine.
In addition to free food and entertainment, the National Constitution Center will be offering free admission all day, courtesy of Wawa.
The first Wawa Hoagie Day was commemorated with a free, 500-foot hoagie at City Hall in 1992. On that day, then-Mayor Ed Rendell proclaimed the hoagie the “Official Sandwich of Philadelphia.”
