Rockford Park Concert Stage

FOWP is excited to announce that we have received all funding to build a new concert stage at Rockford Park

Rockford Park is home to a variety of programs and events throughout the year. FOWP hosts a free concert there every Wednesday evening for 9 weeks in the summer.

The existing concert stage doesn't offer cover from a passing shower or electrical hookups for the bands to use. We want to change that! We will be fast tracking construction on a new stage so that it will be ready for our 2024 Live! in the Park Concert Series.

The Project Will Include

Price Tag: $110,000

Includes stage design and construction, permits, and prevailing wage costs.

Community Support

The Highlands Community Association held the Highlands High 5K in Rockford Park to raise funds specifically for the Concert Venue project. They donated over $13,000 to the Friends of Wilmington Parks in 2022. City Councilman Nathan Fields has also contributed to the project as well.


We have received a generous grant from the Rockford Woodlawn Trust to help us kick off fundraising. Their support has been integral to our success in procuring the remaining funding for the project.

Community Reinvestment Funds

We have been awarded $78,000 by the Delaware Legislature Bond Committee to build the stage.
