It’s Wawa Hoagie Day: Get Your (Free!) Piece of a 7-Ton Hoagie

For the 26th year in a row, the company is serving up a half-turkey, half-Italian hoagie for free at Independence Mall.

Let the 26th annual Wawa Hoagie Day commence.

Wawa associates, WMMR’s Preston & Steve, and hoagie fans across the region will gather outside the National Constitution Center at noon to feast on a seven-ton half-turkey, half-Italian hoagie while honoring military members, firefighters, and police officers in the Wawa Hoagie Day tradition — part of The Wawa Foundation’s partnership with the United Service Organizations (or the USO, for short).

Philadelphia firefighters and police officers and members of the Air and Army National Guard will compete in a hoagie-building contest for charity, and there will be a special appearance by the USO Show Troupe.

More than six tons of Wawa hoagie will go to the crowd — for free, of course! Also on Thursday, you can enjoy free admission to the National Constitution Center. It’s all part of the kickoff for the Wawa Welcome America festival, which you can read more about here.

If you’re looking to score a free hoagie today, be sure to visit Independence Mall between noon and 2 p.m. And get ready for long lines!
