If your idea of a great afternoon is Eagles football, craft beers and tasty food, Eagles Fantennial Festival might interest you.

The festival will include craft beer and food trucks, appearances by Eagles legends, a celebration of the four best plays in Eagles history, a display of Eagles Hall of Fame busts, Eagles cornhole, appearances by Eagles cheerleaders and SWOOP, and photos of the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

The festival will be held Sept. 21 from 4-7 p.m. at the beer garden at the Cherry Street Pier, 121 N. Christopher Columbus Blvd., Philadelphia.

Tickets are $15 and include a commemorative Eagles Fantennial cup and your first drink. They can be purchased at www.philadelphiaeagles.com/festival.

The Fantennial Festival is part of Eagles Fantennial Weekend, which itself is part of NFL100, a year-long celebration that kicked off this year to commemorate the National Football League’s 100th season.

"With fans at the center, NFL100 will be a big family reunion for all those across the country, and around the world, whose lives have been enriched by the sport of football," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a release. "Over nearly 100 years, the NFL and the game of football have continued to evolve and grow. NFL100 is a chance to celebrate how far we've come and look ahead to the next 100 years."

The NFL 100 campaign kicked off during Super Bowl LIII with "The 100-Year Game," a commercial that featured more than 40 current and former NFL players, including 19 Hall of Famers. The campaign will continue throughout the upcoming season and will culminate at Super Bowl LIV on Feb. 2 in Miami.

"We've coined the term 'Fantennial' to serve as the spirit of the NFL100 celebration," said Pete Abitante, chairman of the NFL100 campaign. "We're excited to recognize fans all season long with once-in-a-lifetime experiences, all while we pay tribute to the players, coaches and teams that have helped create and continue to foster the NFL."
