Sheetz, Wawa, Primanti Bros., Hershey’s on the menu at Governor-elect Shapiro’s inaugural party

Guests at Governor-elect Josh Shapiro’s inauguration party on Tuesday night will be snacking on French fries, savoring the famous Farm Show shakes and filling their plates with sandwiches from rival convenience stores Sheetz and Wawa.

It’s fitting that the celebration of Pennsylvania’s 48th Governor showcases some of the best food and drink in the state.

“We are thrilled to feature an incredible array of Pennsylvania businesses from across the Commonwealth at the Inaugural Celebration,” said Amanda Warren, executive director of the Shapiro-Davis Inaugural Committee. “Governor-elect Shapiro knows that our local businesses are the backbone of Pennsylvania’s economy, so we are proud to have more than 60 locally owned and operated businesses partner with us to usher in the Shapiro-Davis Administration. ”.

Rock Lititz in Lititz, Lancaster County, will host the celebration of Shapiro and Lieutenant Governor-elect Austin Davis culminating their previous swearing-in ceremonies in Harrisburg. The inaugural committee said the party at the 96-acre venue is expected to be a “dynamic, interactive and accessible celebration.”

Rap stars Wiz Khalifa, R&B singer Smokey Robinson and indie rock group Mt. Joy will be among the performers.

Partygoers will find a smorgasbord of Pennsylvania brands representing all corners of the state, from Primanti Bros. in Pittsburgh to Phillips Mushrooms in Kennett Square, Tastykakes in Philadelphia and Lavery Brewing Company in Erie.

Familiar names like Eat’n Park, Hatfield, Hershey’s, Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery in Lititz, Just Born Quality Confections in Philadelphia and Martin’s Snacks in York County will participate. Additionally, several wineries, distilleries and breweries, including DG Yuengling & Son in Pottsville and Troegs Independent Brewing in Hershey, will offer celebratory drinks.

Local baker Aunt Debby’s Desserts in Hummelstown will be sharing signature decorated sugar cookies.

This is the first time an opening has been held at Rock Lititz, according to the committee. Governor Tom Wolf’s inauguration four years ago was held at the Farm Show Complex.

The Rock Lititz campus is a mecca for big-name musicians, many including Katy Perry, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, and Shawn Mendes, who have been spotted in the area over the years. The campus includes a hotel and a total of 35 companies that offer equipment and expertise in a wide variety of live entertainment services.

Unfortunately, it’s too late to get tickets for the party, which sold out in 48 hours. The committee kept the ticket price for the evening’s celebration at $50 to keep it affordable, while sponsorship packages of up to $150,000 help defray the costs of daytime events. No taxpayer dollars are spent on the inaugural festivities.

Most of the food is donated and some is purchased by the Shapiro-Davis Inaugural Committee.

Both Shapiro and Davis will participate in Days of Service activities in the lead up to their openings. The first was held yesterday in Pittsburgh, one in Philadelphia today and then as part of Harrisburg’s Central Pennsylvania MLK Day of Service on Monday.
