Each Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m., from July 12 through August 23, 2017, we’ll be bringing high quality talent for family-friendly performances on the lawn in front of the pavilion. Attendees can bring their own picnics or purchase food and beverages from vendors at each concert. Each week’s musical act(s) will be complemented by additional arts performers including jugglers, improv actors, spoken word artists, puppeteers, magicians, face painters and the like. We will have lawn games available to visitors to play with as they enjoy the outdoor entertainment. 

Here's the full line-up of artists for Summer 2017:

  • July 12th – Wilmington teen jazz artist, Maya Belardo
  • July 19th – Baltimore-based social justice singer-songwriter and Baltimore rap artist Jahiti 
  • July 26th – Wilmington Funk band The Souldaires
  • August 2nd –Soul, Smooth Jazz, Blues and Gospel group Pristine Raeign
  • August 9th – Wilmington spoken-word, soul and hip-hop artist Richard Raw 
  • August 16th – Percussive piano-playing vocalist Joy Ike 
  • August 23rd – Youth night featuring high school aged performers

Concert-goers will have the opportunity to interact with performance and visual artists throughout each evening. We are especially excited to offer the opportunity for participants to interpret their own experience through a live painting exercise led by Eunice LaFate. Other performers include Jonathan the Juggler, Lee Zimmerman the Puppet Guy, Fearless Improv of City Theatre Company, Bob and Dori Fostok of Party Business.

The Summer Concert Series represents the first free and regularly occurring public arts-related programming in this part of the park in many decades. We hope that you will join us!

his program is supported, in part, by a grant from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The Division promotes Delaware arts events on DelawareScene.com.
