We often don’t talk about the world culinary offerings available in Philadelphia. That all changes now. Join us on June 24th at Penn’s Landing for the kick off to Wawa’s Welcome to America celebration with Taste of Philadelphia. Take your taste-buds for a Taste of Philadelphia with a sampling mouth-watering dishes from some of Philadelphia’s favorite dining spots. Find a seat along the waterfront and enjoy an upbeat performance by world-renowned contemporary jazz musician Gerald Veasley to round out opening night.
Taste of Philadelphia continues for the rest of the weekend on June 25th and June 26th as well! On Saturday, June 25 at 8 p.m., Aaron Neville will rock the stage with his famous combination of rhythm and blues, followed by brilliant fireworks over the Delaware River— the first of three fireworks displays during Wawa Welcome America!
This is all part of the 11 day Wawa Welcome to America festival. There are a litany of activities and events going on to celebrate America’s independence. Make sure you are following @July4thPhilly on Twitter for more details and like Welcome America on Facebook!
