Port Washington, WI - May 15, 2017 - The Freeport Music summer concert series regretfully will not take place in 2017. This is due primarily to a loss of sponsorship dollars for last year's series, and it became evident that the funding necessary to present the three free monthly shows at the Bandshell in Port Washington Veteran's Memorial Park was not going to be there for 2017 either.
After 12 years of bringing high-quality "National Acts" to Port Washington for these Free Admission evenings, it is with a heavy heart that this decision had to be made for 2017. Not only has the loss of funding caused concerns, but also after 12 years, attendance at the concerts has not really met expectations for a free music series of this quality.
As lifetime music lovers, efforts will be made to look at possibilities for bringing the Freeport Music summer concert series back in the future. It will however, depend heavily on sponsorship support, which is the only way a free concert series like Freeport Music can continue and thrive. We hope to see the Port Washington community's support for the future of Freeport Music both financially and in spirit return! We would absolutely love to once again plan and present the Freeport Music concerts, which are a great cultural asset to the community.
A big thank you goes out to all of the supporters of Freeport Music over these past 12 years, including the City of Port Washington Park and Recreation Department who have been full supporters of this grass roots effort! There has been enough negative discourse in Port Washington as of late, so let's join together as friends and neighbors to revive this positive summer tradition and enjoy our great community and its spirit together, by supporting the future return of Freeport Music! The successful return of the Freeport Music summer concert series depends on all of us!
