I had always been under the assumption that the event was only a day or two with outdoor concerts and fireworks, but in fact it is an 11-day celebration of America beginning June 24th through July 4th! Great food (Wawa Hoagies), great entertainment (The Roots) and Philly based movies (Rocky) round out this spectacular event. The 2011 Schedule of Events provides you with all the information to plan your trip from the ‘burbs into town, including:
Wawa Hoagie Day
Taste of Philly
Philly at the Movies
