Cape May – Lewes Ferry Hosts Free Community Concerts at the Lewes Ferry Terminal
Lewes, DE – Today, Cape May – Lewes Ferry officials announced that four FREE concerts will be held this summer on its spacious lawn located adjacent to the Lewes terminal building. Returning after a popular debut last summer, these community events, which begin at 5:00 p.m. and conclude by 8 p.m., are free to the public.
“The concerts were such a hit last year that we had to bring them back,” said Nikky Fisher, Lewes Terminal Manager. “Our family-friendly memorable nights of music and fun are definitely a break from the ordinary and - best of all – they’re free!”
Food and beverages will be available for purchase at the Ferry’s outdoor bar and grill, “On the Rocks,” or inside the Lewes passenger terminal. Carry-on alcoholic beverages will NOT be permitted on the property. In the event of light to moderate rain, the show events will be held as planned.
Fisher noted that visitors and residents who planned to attend a concert should bring their own lawn chair or beach blanket to relax and have a great time on the terminal green. For more information on all concerts go to cmlf.com/events.

July 28: Jesse Garron’s Tribute to Elvis
This group of seven helps fill the void for those who have never seen Elvis live. The name comes from Elvis’ twin brother who died at birth and they pay tribute to the great American Icon.
