The Borough of Wildwood Crest has canceled the first four shows of its 2020 Summer Music Series at Centennial Park due to Executive Order 152 by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy that limits the amount of people that can attend an outdoor social gathering.
The canceled shows include performances by Parrotbeach on Saturday, June 27; Fuse Box on Wednesday, July 1; Don’t Call Me Francis on Saturday, July 4; and Mystical Majesty Band on Wednesday, July 8.
Executive Order 152 currently limits outdoor gatherings to no more than 100 people. The governor has indicated that these limits may be raised to 250 people on June 22 and 500 people on July 3. Those limits are not high enough for the Wildwood Crest Summer Music Series to function, however, as the performances regularly draw crowds of more than 500 people on Wednesday evenings and more than 1,000 people on Saturday evenings.
The 2020 Wildwood Crest Summer Music Series is now tentatively scheduled to begin on Saturday, July 11, at 7:30 p.m. at Centennial Park with a performance by the Deck Band, if the governor further raises the limits on outdoor social gatherings. Subsequent shows are scheduled for each Wednesday through Sept. 2 and each Saturday through Sept. 19 at Centennial Park, which is located at Fern Road and Ocean Avenue.
The full schedule for the Wildwood Crest Summer Music Series, as well as information on other special events and activities in Wildwood Crest, can be found on the Events and Festivals page at wildwoodcrest.org.
