Where to Park for Wawa’s Welcome America Festival

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

welcome americaIf this past year has taught us anything about Philly, it’s that we know how to host big events. Think about it for a second: Between last year’s papal visit and the countless events taking place on the Parkway, we’ve clearly cemented ourselves as a vibrant event hosting city — and we’ll prove it once more as Wawa’s Welcome America Festival returns to the Parkway.

From June 27 to July 4 the Welcome America Festival will be in full swing with a slew of events leading up to the (drum roll please) Fourth of July Party on the Parkway. For a complete run-down on the events leading up to the grand finale, take a gander at the festival calendar here.

On July 4, the Party on the Parkway kicks off at noon with Kidz Bop presenting musical performances, children’s activities, foods and cultural events which celebrate Philly’s neighborhoods and nationalities.

When 5 p.m. rolls around, it’s bumped up a notch with the Welcome America July 4th Concert followed by an elaborate fireworks display.

With all the hubbub on the Parkway, make sure you’ve got a game plan, especially when it comes to parking. Luckily if you plan on driving, we’ve got three conveniently located spots where you can park. Check out the locations below or use our parking locator to find a spot that best suites you.

Psst — on-street metered parking is free on July 4!
