Rock the Block Street Festival Returns to Stogie Joe’s Tavern

The Rock the Block Street Festival will return to South Philadelphia on Sunday, June 10th from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m.

The street festival, held in front of Stogie Joe’s Tavern, 1801 East Passyunk Avenue,(Passyunk & Moore Streets), will feature Italian food including favorites like hot sausage, sandwiches and homemade meatballs. There’s also live music by The Business, cold beer, cocktails, raffles, a silent auction featuring products and experiences donated by local families and businesses, and activities for the entire family.

New this year: a $40 all-inclusive wristband allows guests to enjoy Stogie Joe’s Tavern’s offerings all day. This year the event will also include $5 pay-as-you-go beers, with a limited number of discounted 4-beer ticket packs available in advance for $16.

All proceeds from Rock the Block benefit The Cancer Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, on behalf of the Coach Wags Memorial Foundation.

The first Rock the Block Street Festival was held in 2012 to benefit the Coach Wags Memorial Foundation (CWMF), which was established in the name of Coach John “Wags” Wagner, the freshman football coach at St. Joe’s Prep for 13 years. Coach Wagner passed away in 2008, two years after being diagnosed with head and neck cancer. Wagner’s family, friends, and former players founded CWMF in 2010 to benefit cancer research, and improve the daily lives of children in Philadelphia who are battling this disease.
