This August, jump start your weekend at Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing as it plays host to live jazz and fireworks shows every Friday night.
First, acclaimed musicians perform smooth jazz tunes for the RiverStage crowd in a series of evening concerts. Each week features a different jazz musician for a 7:30 p.m. concert.
The performances begin on Friday, August 2 with a performance by Alex Bugnon, a jazz musician hailing from Switzerland whose hits have earned spots on the Top 40 R&B charts.
The upcoming weeks feature more performances by internationally recognized performers and Grammy-nominated musicians.
Immediately following each concert, at 9:15 p.m., a spectacular land-side fireworks show brightens the sky, the fireworks erupt from the Penn’s Landing marina.
Ready for the best news of all? The concerts and fireworks shows are both completely free. So, sit back and relax without reaching for your wallet at all.
