The much-anticipated Lewes Concert Series is set to make its grand return starting Wednesday, June 12, promising more music and breathtaking sunsets! This 10-week concert series features a mix of nationally touring artists and some of the best tribute bands in the country. Excitement is already building for the return of fan-favorites, The Amish Outlaws.

Kicking off the series is the Rolling Stones Tribute Band – The Classic Stones, followed by a special Thursday night performance by Baltimore, Maryland native Cris Jacobs, and local sensation Sweet Leda.

The all-ages outdoor music series will take place on the green at the Lewes Ferry Terminal, beginning at 6 p.m., from June 12 to August 14.

Event organizer Matt VanBelle shared, "We’re excited to have the summer concert season back upon us. Our team has been hard at work to ensure we deliver a world-class music experience in such a beautiful scenic space right on the water.”

This year introduces a dedicated Food Truck Schedule, rotating every show throughout the summer, and the new Vendor Market, weaving local small businesses into the fabric of the events. VanBelle adds, “We wanted to continue to support local small businesses.”

Returning this year is the Dewey Beach Picnic Co. VIP tent, now with upgrades to stage viewing and other amenities. VIP ticket holders will enjoy early access at 5 p.m. and have a private bar under the shady tent.
