Wawa Hoagie Day Exhibits and Programs:  9:30 a.m. – 8 p.m.

Wawa Hoagie Day is “Life, Liberty, & the Pursuit of Deliciousness” at its finest as 4.5 tons of hoagies will be assembled at the National Constitution Center and served free to thousands of people outside the Independence Visitor Center on Independence Mall. Join in this patriotic event as Wawa salutes our military, fire, and police. The National Constitution Center will offer free museum admission to all visitors on July 2, courtesy of Wawa, as well as special programs, live musical performances, and an exhibition on the history of the hoagie. (Note: For your free Wawa hoagie, stop by the Independence Visitor Center lawn between noon and 2 p.m.) For a full schedule, visit constitutioncenter.org/calendar/wawa-hoagie-day-exhibits-programs.

Finding the Founders:  10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Visit the National Constitution Center and neighboring sites throughout Historic Philadelphia to join fascinating conversations with scholars, who will share their insights on equality and freedom through the lens of the American Revolution. The program will provide an expanded understanding of Independence Day—one that sees the holiday as both a celebration and an acknowledgment of America’s ongoing struggle to achieve the ideals expressed in the nation’s founding documents.
