City of Charleston Presents A Labor Day Celebration

The City of Charleston is thrilled to continue its celebration of the arts with a special free-to-attend Labor Day concert at “The Joe” – home of the Charleston RiverDogs. We're sorry the weather prevented our Independence Day weekend event from happening in July but we are excited it has now been rescheduled for Monday, September 5 at 8:00pm. Gates will open at 6:00pm.

The concert will be followed by fireworks, generously supported by The Charleston Place.
The Charleston Symphony will perform a program featuring music by John Williams, Duke Ellington, and many other pops favorites!

The event is free to attend, but tickets must be reserved in advance. If you booked tickets for July 2, you will need to re-book, you will not be automatically added from the previous July performance.

Gates will open at 6pm with concessions available from the RiverDogs hospitality team.
