The festival, now in its sixth year at Wiggins Park, is produced in partnership with the Camden County Board of Freeholders. This venue was selected by WXPN for its spectacular waterfront views, natural amphitheatre for great sound, easy access to public transportation, lush open green spaces and an array of local attractions, such as Adventure Aquarium and the Camden Children's Garden, which serves as the Kids Corner venue. WXPN will again offer a variety of family-friendly activities throughout the festival.
Gates open at 5 p.m. on Friday, July 16; and noon on Saturday and Sunday, July 17 and 18. The Kids Corner Area will be open from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. As part of the four-acre Camden Children's Garden, join host Kathy O'Connell as Kids Corner offers family-friendly music and exhibits, exciting amusement rides, themed gardens and nature walks.
CAMDEN COUNTY'S WIGGINS PARK is located on the Camden Waterfront, between the Adventure Aquarium and the Susquehanna Bank Center and features a promenade along the Delaware River with breathtaking views of the river and Philadelphia skyline
