Celebrating Wawa’s Annual Hoagie Day Saluting our Everyday Heroes in America’s Birthplace

July 1st | Noon | 5th & Chestnut

Wawa Hoagie Day will make its exciting return with an in-person event and celebration connecting the community with delicious turkey hoagies, a salute to our local and national heroes, and FREE admission to the National Constitution Center.

Hosted by Preston Elliot and Casey Foster of 93.3 WMMR’s Preston & Steve Show, the 2021 Hoagie Day celebration will focus on honoring our nation’s men and women in uniform and celebrate Wawa’s partnership with the USO, a nonprofit organization that strengthens America’s military service members by connecting them to family, home and country throughout their service to the nation.

This year, Wawa will serve a four-ton hoagie in a block-party-like setting in the most historic block in the nation – Independence Mall at 5th and 6th Streets. Hoagie Day will feature one of Wawa’s signature favorite hoagies – turkey!
