July 12, 2017 begins the first annual
Wednesdays on the Waterfront (WOW)
in Newport, Vermont. This free concert series, which hosts a different band each Wednesday evening from 6:00-8:30pm, will take place at The Waterfront Gazebo on the shores of Lake Memphremagog.
Wednesdays on the Waterfront is a music-based community venture spearheaded by Andrea Carbine and Veronique Rancourt. After a dinner party turned brainstorming session back in April 2017, Carbine and Rancourt have joined forces on a volunteer mission to bring more positive energy to Newport. With their combined history of event planning, love of music, and recognition for the need of renewed passion in and for Newport, Wednesdays on the Waterfront has come to life.
The venture was immediately met with positive support from local community members, businesses, and the City of Newport, all who expressed great interest in the summer concert series. Countless details have come together, sponsorships have been secured, and the revival of Newport’s Waterfront is starting to take shape.
Carbine and Rancourt anticipate this year’s WOW to be the first of many more to come. With six dates to start this year’s line-up, the hope is that it will grow to eight or ten concerts a season in subsequent summers. Spread the word, join the fun, and enjoy a breathtaking sunset on Lake Memphremagog while you rock the night away.
We hope to see you there!
