Music and More!
There’s just something about summer that brings music to our ears. From listening to our favorite songs on the radio to mixing the perfect cassette tape to creating an amazing playlist, summer tunes have captivated our hearts and minds for generations.
In Door County – and especially in Egg Harbor – music is engrained in our culture. All types of genres, bands, and artists can be found playing live at a variety of unique venues around town throughout the summer months.
A few of our favorite local spots to listen near Newport Resort include…
Peg Egan Sunset Concert Series
Come one, come all to the Peg Egan Performing Arts Center for their Sunset Concert Series! These free music events are held every Sunday at 7:00pm from June to August at the Egg Harbor Amphitheatre.
Local and traveling bands alike place their own signature stamps on each concert, including those playing folk, jazz, blues, rock, or some other fun genre.
All you need to enjoy the tunes is a lawn chair, yourself, and a love for live music. Restrooms and drinking water are available for public use.
What’s even better is how close these concerts are to Newport Resort…we’re next door neighbors! Just a quick walk down the street and you can take part in a live music experience the whole family is sure to love.
