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 Monday evening for 9 weeks in the summer.

FOWP is excited to announce our plans for a new concert stage at Rockford Park. Here you will see the location of the stage, artist renderings of the design and the specs for the project. These renderings portray a look and feel for the design. Material details are still to be determined. Our plans are to have it ready for the 2025 Concert Season.

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 Field has also contributed to the project as well.


We have received 2 generous grants from the Rockford Woodlawn Foundation. 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.
