Smooth Jazz Summer Nights Policies

SJSN is the longest running FREE event produced by the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (DRWC). In order to ensure its continued success, we need your help in following two important policies:

  • Chairs - Chairs cannot be left unoccupied on the Great Plaza prior to the concert start time. Any chair(s) left unoccupied will be removed from the Great Plaza. We understand this practice was a long standing tradition, however the security and safety of our guests visiting the Delaware River Waterfront is of the utmost importance to DRWC.
  •  
  • Alcohol - We would also like to take this opportunity to remind our valued guests that outside alcohol is not permitted inside the gated area of the Great Plaza. Anyone bringing in alcohol can / will be asked to leave the Great Plaza (or any DRWC owned and operated property) and will be escorted off the premises.
