Wilmington’s signature summertime concert series returns for its 9th season to Riverfront Park in Downtown. The Downtown Sundown Concert Series will run each Friday night from May 23 through August 29, 2014, with the exception of July 4th. The free concerts are from 6 to 10pm and feature both local performers and touring bands. Wilmington Downtown Incorporated (WDI) organizes and directs the event.
The Downtown Sundown Concert Series is a free, family friendly event that attracts both local residents and out of town visitors. The concerts are designed to provide interesting and fun entertainment for attendees, spur interest and activity to Downtown during the early evening hours, and to raise funds for WDI’s downtown development programs. Last year, over 22,000 people attended the concerts.
“This is a great, outdoor community event at a picturesque setting along the river,” said Ed Wolverton, WDI President and CEO. “We are eagerly anticipating the start of the new season and are pleased to feature both returning and new performers this year,” he said.
The Downtown Sundown Concert Series is sponsored by Bob King Automall, the Downtown Courtyard by Marriott Hotel, Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, Bud Light, Luna | Ad, Kind Beers, Reeds Jewelry, Tayloe Gray Kristof, WWAY and Sunrise Broadcasting. Sponsors for the local bands that open each show are The Duck & Dive and Hell’s Kitchen.
