Riverfront Summer Concert Series Returns for 2021, Adding Lunchtime Concerts!

After cancelling their Summer Concert Series in 2020 due to the pandemic, the Riverfront Development Corporation is thrilled to bring back the popular tradition in 2021.

The Riverfront Summer Concert Series will once again return to Tubman-Garrett Riverfront Park, and will offer a free show to the public each Thursday evening in July and August beginning July 8th. All concerts will be from 7-830p.m. The concerts will also incorporate performances from the Music School of Delaware, Opera Delaware, and the Christina Cultural Arts Center throughout the Summer.

Additionally, as part of the RDC’s 25th anniversary celebration, Riverfront Wilmington will also host a monthly free lunchtime concert at Hare Pavilion. The concerts will take place from 12:15-1:15p.m., and will begin Wednesday, June 16th with classical violinist and pop-cover artist Julia Johnson.
