Twelfth Season of Live Concerts at the Cape May Ferry Terminal

Lower Township and Cape May-Lewes Ferry Partner on Six Free Community Nights

CAPE MAY, NJ — Cape May – Lewes Ferry and Lower Township officials have announced the return of the free public concert series on the Coastline Realty Stage this summer! Beginning July 10th and continuing on Wednesdays until the final concert on Tuesday, August 20, the Cape May Ferry terminal lawn overlooking the Delaware Bay will host a series of six free community concert events. All concerts will begin at 5:30 p.m.

“We are thrilled to host the popular summer concert series on our terminal green with our Lower Township friends,” said Heath Gehrke, Director of Ferry Operations. “It’s always a great time when friends and families can come together to enjoy scenic views, listen to music, and have some fun. The Ferry’s the place to be every Wednesday evening this summer and we hope you can join us for these electric events!”  

“On behalf of Township Council, we are excited to be partnering again with the DRBA on the best concert series in Cape May County,” said Lower Township Mayor Frank Sippel.  “And on Tuesday, August 20th we are happy to announce that once again the Amish Outlaws will be performing at our Children’s Benefit Concert, which is a fundraiser for our Children’s Fund.   Please come out and support the Children of Lower Township.”

Carry-in alcoholic beverages will not be permitted, but food and beverages can be purchased from the Ferry’s outdoor bar and grill “Stowaways,” or inside the Cape May passenger terminal. It is recommended for guests attending to bring personal beach towels or lawn chairs to relax on during the event and watch the sunset over the bay.
