Wawa Welcome America Fest

June 28, 2018 - July 4, 2018

Fireworks light up the skyline in Philadelphia on Independence Day.

Celebrating the birthday of our country in its birthplace, the Wawa Welcome America Festival takes place every year, and is one of the city’s favorite annual traditions. The week-long celebration beginning June 28th will consist of free concerts around Philadelphia, as well as accompanied eats from local food vendors, free museum days, block parties and more.  The final celebration will take place on July 4th with a FREE Pitbull concert and a fireworks finale to cap off the evening. There are few things more festive than watching the night-sky light up with a pyrotechnics display that bursts over the towering Philadelphia Museum of Art in what promises to be Philadelphia’s largest firework show yet.

Book here to stay with The Independent Hotel during this year’s Wawa Welcome America Fest. For more information on the event and a daily schedule, check out its website here.
