2021 SPONSORSHIP INFORMATION

"CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF LIVE MUSIC"

The RiversEDGE Concert Series is a designated non-profit fund established at the Hamilton Community Foundation in 2012. From the outset, our purpose has been simple: "Build community with live music experiences."

Over the past nine years, with the support of our community partners, corporate sponsors, and volunteers; RiversEDGE has attracted some of the top musicians touring the United States, making it a premier live music destination for both residents of Hamilton and the tri-state area. RiversEDGE has also played an integral part in fostering development around the amphitheater as the estimated annual economic impact of RiversEDGE concerts to the greater Hamilton community exceeds $1 million.

From 2012 to 2019, a vast majority of our concerts were free general admission. 2020 forced us to change our approach as we had to reduce capacity to less than 1/3 of normal capacity in an effort to produce events in accordance with State mandates. The reduced capacity left us with no choice but to charge a nominal admission fee for concerts. Despite the change in format, our sponsors and the community at large continued to support RiversEDGE. 

Financial support from our corporate sponsors allowed us to maintain nominal admission fees ranging from $1-$11 per person, making concerts accessible to people from all walks of life.  As a result, 12 of 14 concerts in 2020 were SOLD OUT (700 People)

RiversEDGE was among the first music venues in the WORLD to devise and execute a concept to safely produce live events. Our plan proved effective as more than 6,000 people attended a concert at RiversEDGE in 2020 and ZERO cases of COVID-19 were contact traced to the amphitheater.

In 2021, we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the RiversEDGE Concert Series. Given the current circumstances, we are planning to utilize the socially distanced, paid admission format in 2021 until further notice. With your financial support, we will be able to maintain nominal admission fees making concerts accessible for a greater number of people. After the year we've all been through, we will all appreciate a safe environment to enjoy live music.

Our promise to our corporate sponsors and the greater Hamilton community is that we will return to primarily FREE general admission shows when we're given the "all clear" in an effort to provide the greatest exposure for our sponsors and the greatest accessibility for the community. Until then, we need and appreciate your support more than ever. Thank you for your consideration to support RiversEDGE in 2021 as we celebrate 10 years of live music in Hamilton.
