Patriotic Big Band Salute at The Park at Eastern Wharf
July 4 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Thompson Savannah and The Park at Eastern Wharf will host a free community concert on Tuesday, July 4th, featuring a riverfront performance by the Fabulous Equinox Orchestra.
The event will pay tribute to, and raise awareness for, the 200 Club of the Coastal Empire and will be presented by Tate Law Group. The night will culminate with spectacular views of the annual fireworks display, provided by Savannah’s Waterfront.
Don’t miss the soulful, swingin’ “Sound of Savannah” as The Fabulous Equinox Orchestra celebrates America through song. The performance will begin at 7:30pm and end with a grand finale during the fireworks. Expect to hear songs by Ray Charles, Neal Diamond, Count Basie as well as beach and shag classics; all with a spicy dash of Louisiana Big Band Soul.
The family-friendly event will feature food trucks from BowTie BBQ, Naked Dog, Chazitos and Mahalo Shave Ice. Food will also be available at Bar by Fleeting and Bar Julian in the Thompson Savannah.
Alcohol will be available to purchase from the Thompson Savannah indoor and outdoor bars. The July 4th celebration will serve as the official launch of the hotel’s new custom beer, East River Lager, a proprietary collaboration with Service Brewing. A portion of bar proceeds will benefit the 200 Club of the Coastal Empire.
Get there early to secure your spot. Patrons are encouraged to bring lawn chairs or blankets and small, personal coolers are allowed.
Metered street parking is free on July 4th. Special Event garage parking rates will be in effect in the Eastern Wharf City Garage.
