Live music performances return to the Dr. Phillips Performing Arts Center– on the front yard! The verdant mall surrounded by high-rise buildings and city hall provides a stunning backdrop for a gorgeous night of quality outdoor entertainment. Performing artists who have or will soon grace the lawn during the Frontyard Festival include El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico, Wynton Marsalis, Step Afrika!, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and Smith & Myers.
Dr. Phillips felt the time was right to reinvigorate the community and provide support for the entertainment industry in a safe manner that keeps its patrons and artists safe. From December 2020 to May 2021, you and your family or party of five can reserve a socially distant box from which to watch live music, dance, comedy, films, and unique cultural experiences. Food and drinks from your favorite local restaurants will be available for purchase.
