Record breaking crowds attended the popular summer music festival last year, which was held for the first time at Wiggins Park – a venue selected by WXPN for its spectacular waterfront views, lush open green spaces, and array of local attractions, such as Adventure Aquarium and the Camden Children's Garden, which served as the Kids Corner location. WXPN will again offer a variety of family-friendly activities and host an incredible lineup of up-and-coming and heritage musical acts at an affordable ticket price.
Camden County's Wiggins Park is located on the Camden Waterfront, between the Adventure Aquarium and the Battleship New Jersey. The Park also features a 50-slip marina, and a promenade along the Delaware River with breathtaking views of the river and Philadelphia skyline.
