Friday night concert series is a combination of land and sea. Great place for boaters to share music. The promoters now provide the music to boaters via an FM radio transmitter..nice touch.

Not a bad spot for a commuter event. I recommend walking and forgoing the transportation limitations.

We were on the Blvd for the Dew Wap, lots of cars to see, bands for your enjoyment, the river to sit by. When there isn't a function, just a great place to stroll along the river or to stop and enjoy a quiet moment.

We were fortunate to be in Charleston on the last Friday before Labor Day. The reason that was lucky was that it was the last free concert held at Haddad Riverfront Park of the season. Charleston shuts the street down in front of the park on these summer Friday night events. We enjoyed the two somewhat obscure groups that were... More

Friday nights are great at riverfront park. Take your family and enjoy the free concerts! Park also has plenty of seating, restrooms, & even a sandbox for the younger kids to keep them occupied. There's plenty of food vendors that set up right on the boulevard and if you like to drink they offer alcohol too just remember ID.

This park is located right in the middle of Charleston, right beside of the Kanawha river. This park is the location of many car shows, concerts and other events. There are near by hotels and restaurants, as well as, vendors on some events.

We love to boat up here and enjoy the festivities. We were disappointed there wasn't anything on the 4th of July. We love the concerts and enjoy the park.
