drum roll please…
Fireworks will burst both over Philadelphia and on stage this Fourth of July Independence Day. 2022 Wawa Welcome America concert — the main event of more than two festival weeks — takes place.
In 2021, Bebe Rexha and Flo Rida co-headlined the July 4th concert at the Mann Center for the Performing Arts in Fairmount Park.
So who will be taking the stage in Philadelphia this summer? At 10:00 a.m. Tuesday, city leaders and Wawa Welcome America organizers will announce the headliner and location for the 2022 Main Event.
You can follow the announcement live on this page.
The July 4th concert, coming this summer after two years of smaller celebrations due to the COVID pandemic, caps 16 days of free fun across Philadelphia as part of the annual celebration of American freedom.
We already know that the 2022 festival will start on June 19 (June 19, 2022) and will end on July 4, 2022. The organizers have not (yet) announced any details about special events. However, they have teased some of the traditional highlights – including Wawa Hoagie Day – on Event website:
“Festival-goers can enjoy free concerts, fireworks, free museum access, Wawa Hoagie Day and more!”
On the website you can also visit some of the museums that will open their doors for the festival Museum of Illusions to the National Constitution Center to Automobile Museum of the Simeone Foundation. All offer free visits, noisy WWA Events Page.
And this year, WWA continues its “Freedom – Liberty” program, expanded to commemorate June 16, 2021.
These events in partnership with African American Museum in Philadelphia (AAMP) and Visit Philly, were developed by AAMP to provide Juneteenth education and awareness. They also explore the themes that connect June 16 and July 4.
NBC10 and Telemundo 62 will be your home for all the learning, fun and music to enjoy during Wawa Welcome America in Philadelphia. Stay tuned.
