The countdown is on. On Saturday, September 23rd, starting at 12:30 PM (11:00 AM for VIPs), we‘ll be at Citizen’s Bank Park in South Philly for the 3rd Annual Cheesesteak & Food Fest.

This year, in addition to our mouth-watering cheesesteak egg rolls, cheesesteak sliders, and cheesesteak spring rolls, Original Philly is serving up some special activities.


For the first time, we’re inviting all attendees to participate in our first-ever Scavenger Hunt. We’ll pick four winners, and each one will get a prize pack including a 10-pound case of Original Philly beef steak—enough to make 40 cheesesteaks!

Don’t worry—we realize people are still coming primarily to eat, so we’ve made the Hunt pretty easy. For your chance to win, just tweet 4 photos to us using our handle @Original_Philly.

The photos are a piece of chee—um, cake: one at the Harry Kalas statue inside the stadium on the main concourse near the left field corner;one of you savoring a bite at the Fest (sample and location are up to you); one with the “Cheesy” the roaming Cheesesteak mascot; and one at the Original Philly Photo Booth (more on that below).



We’re also giving out at least 100 free Original Philly t-shirts. Just tweet us a selfie (again, @Original_Philly) showing you and/or friends/relatives in celebrating cheesesteak nirvana and then come see us in the Vendor Area. You cannot miss us—seriously. (While supplies last; limit one per customer. Let’s share the wealth!)

Now, about that Photo Booth. When you come visit Original Philly at the Fest—presumably before or after you’ve devoured some of our delectable cheesesteak appetizers—swing around the side and take a fun picture or two in front of our backdrop featuring a Giant Cheesesteak and Philly’s favorite fictional son, Rocky. There are some Fest-appropriate props, too. Say Cheese!


Be sure to use our hashtag, #meatmeinphilly, when you’re socializing!

And also make sure to use our special Snapchat filter. Just open your app and it’ll be there.


This magical even comes but once a year, so don’t miss out. You can buy tickets through the Phillies’ website or get more info at the Fest’s website.

See you soon!
