Mare of Easttown Day is celebrated with Wawa Cheesesteak
The “Mare of Easttown” Spicy Cheesesteak will be available at select locations in Delaware Wawa.
Upper Darby, Pennsylvania residents no longer have to complain about going to that dingy old gas station. Instead, the city where the popular HBO miniseries Mare from Easttown was set will commemorate their new Wawa location with a day dedicated to the show on Thursday June 10th. The event will be rewarded with free coffee, t-shirts and most importantly the Mare of Easttown Spicy Cheesesteak.
However, the event is not just for cross-promotion. Mare of Easttown Day also marks a day honoring the resilient people of the Delaware County community. Local officials will be honored at the event, and Wawa will donate money to charities of their choice. This includes a $ 10,000 donation to the Philadelphia Children’s Hospital.

According to the gas station chain, the name is an “allusion to how hot the show is”. It is not a false statement. The show was so successful that HBO boss Casey Bloys is open to a second season. However, it may be a while before we hear more about it Kate Winslet‘s worried Mare Sheehan.
Wawa served as a surprising plot point on the series for those outside of Pennsylvania, where characters ate hoagies and drank coffee. However, the chain has its origin in the state and has become synonymous with it, even if it has expanded to other states. Winslet even called it “mythical” in a now famous interview with the Los Angeles Times podcast “The Envelope”. Unfortunately, those who live in other Wawa inhabited states like Florida and New Jersey will not be able to attend Mare of Easttown Day. If you want to try the new Spicy Cheesesteak, head to the new Upper Darby, Pennsylvania store on the 10th.
Mare of Easttown can be streamed on HBO Max. For spoiler-filled reactions to the show’s finale, watch episode 319 of The Collider Podcast.
