 Live Concerts Return to the Cape May Ferry Terminal
Lower Township and Cape May-Lewes Ferry Partner on Seven Free Community Nights

Cape May, NJ – Today, Cape May – Lewes Ferry and Lower Township officials announced that a series of seven FREE outdoor concerts will be held on the spacious lawn at the Cape May Ferry this summer. The summer concert series kicks off on Monday, July 3 to coincide with Lower Township’s Independence Day Festival and Fireworks. All subsequent concerts will be held on Wednesdays throughout the summer beginning on July 12. The Cape May concert series is proudly sponsored by Long and Foster Realty of Cape May.

“The Ferry is so much more than a boat ride to Delaware, it’s also the perfect place to gather for events, fun and relaxation,” said Lower Township Manager Jim Ridgway. “Come out to the Cape May Ferry Terminal to enjoy great family fun, live music and entertainment every Wednesdays during the summer.”

“It’s great to be able to expand our partnership with Lower Township to benefit the community,” said Heath Gehrke, Director of Ferry Operations. “It’s wonderful that our terminal can serve as venue for the concert series. It’s a fun night that local and visiting families can all enjoy, and with a beautiful sunset over Delaware Bay to top it all off. We hope you can join us!”

Concert goers are encouraged to bring their own beach blanket and lawn chairs to enjoy the diverse tunes and beautiful views. Food and beverages will be available for purchase inside the Ferry Terminal or at the delicious “On the Rocks” outdoor bar and grill.
