You will not want to miss Fan Fest this year. None other than Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles will be making an appearance. Yes the man who helped Philadelphia have its first-ever Super Bowl parade, will be partying with us on August 26th at Fan Fest.

Nick Foles played in the NFL for 11 years, including 5 with the Eagles. He was drafted by Andy Reid back in 2012. He got his first chance to be the full-time starter the next season with Chip Kelly and had a historic season with 27 TDs and just two interceptions. But not long after that, Chip Kelly traded him. He returned a few years later under Doug Pederson. And we should be grateful he did. Because when Carson Wentz went down, Nick Foles filled in. And as a backup, he led the Eagles through the playoffs and helped us take down Tom Brady and the Patriots to give the city of Philly a trophy.

Fan Fest is the Fanatic’s Annual End of Summer Party. It’s your chance to meet Fanatic Hosts, Philadelphia Athletes, and more. Nick Foles joins a guest list that already includes former Sixer Lou Williams and former Flyer Scott Hartnell. In addition to the guests, there will be Soccer Darts, a wiffle ball arena, a mechanical shark, dunk tanks, exotic sports cars, escape rooms, rock walls, meet and greets, live music, and so much more. The event is hosted at Xfinity Live, with doors opening up at 11, and staying open until 5. You must be 21 or older to attend.

This is your chance to get to see the man who finally got us the Lombardi Trophy. The guy who pulled off the Philly Special. If you don’t have tickets yet, don’t worry.

In case you need a reminder of how important Nick Foles is to Philadelphia Sports history, check out some of his best moments below:

  • The Philly Special

    For the rest of Nick Foles life, he will always be the QB who caught a TD in the Super Bowl. No Eagles fan will ever forget the Philly Special. It was 4th and goal, and the Eagles led 15-12. They could have kicked the Field Goal, and gone up 18-12. But when Doug Pederson called the timeout, Nick Foles asked him the now legendary question? Do you want Philly Philly? The rest is history. It is still one of the greatest plays in Super Bowl history.

  • Nick Foles Throws for 7 TDs Vs the Raiders

    What do Nick Foles, Drew Brees, and Peyton Manning have in common? Well other than all 3 of them having a Super Bowl MVP Award in their trophy case, they also share a record for most TDs thrown in a single game, along with 5 other guys. In week 9 of the 2013 season, Nick Foles put on a show vs the Raiders. he racked up 7 passing TDs. Something no one has surpassed, and only Drew Brees has replicated since Foles did it that season.

  • Lifting the Lombardi Trophy

    And of course, no moment can top when Nick Foles lifted the trophy itself. The greatest moment in so many Eagles fans’ lives, outside of weddings and children being born. Something some fans waited 52 years for, and everyone else waited their whole life for. It wasn’t just him. Brandon Graham, Zach Ertz, Corey Clement, Doug Pederson, Jason Kelce, Lane Johnson, and the rest of the guys on that roster also deserve all the love in the world for what they accomplished. But Nick Foles is often going to be the first guy anyone thinks of when they picture that Super Bowl.
