Amphitheater Coming to Downtown Salisbury

SALISBURY, Md.- The city of Salisbury has begun the design and planning phase for its new amphitheater to be built downtown.

Delmarva Veteran Builders has been contracted to work on the project that will build a 700-person amphitheater on the Riverwalk.

Chris Eccleston from Delmarva Veteran Builders said the company is honored to work on the project.

"It just makes sense now to have a structure there a permanent structure," he said. "Something that we can be proud of a downtown landmark."

Musicians like Jason Lee from SBY Radio said after Headquarters Live shut down, people have been looking for a new live music outlet, and this could be the answer.

"We didn't have it anymore... and we're all very confused and thinking... what do we do now?" Lee said.

Mayor Jake Day said this project is all apart of Salisbury's 20-year downtown revitalization plan.

"That's ultimately part of our responsibility, when we think about the economic growth of our community is to attract people to want to be here to want to spend time here and want to have fun things to do," Day said. 

The first big event to be held at the amphitheater will be the 2018 National Folk Festival.

Delmarva Veteran Builders said it is looking to break ground in March and complete the project in July.
