The Phillies will host the Major League Baseball All-Star game in 2026, according to Matt Breen. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred, Governor Tom Wolf, Mayor Jim Kenney, Phillies owner John Middleton, and Phillies players will be on-hand to make the announcement on Tuesday April 16th near Independence Hall, per John Clark

Philadelphia has not hosted a baseball All-Star game since 1996. The last pro sports All-Star game in Philadelphia was the NBA All-Star game in 2002. 

2026 marks the 250th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence and the birth of the United States of America. 

Bryce Harper and Rhys Hoskins will both be 33 for the 2026 All-Star game.

The Phillies are 7-4 through the first 11 games of this season.
