“We are so excited to welcome the community to The Grand this season. There is absolutely something for everyone” says Pamelyn Manocchio, Executive Director. “It is our sincere hope that we continue the rich history of this historic building as Delaware’s home for the performing arts and place to create lasting memories.”

The Grand celebrates the music and culture of the community by partnering with the Christina Cultural Arts Center for the annual Soul of the City Festival on Saturday, September 16, 2023 from noon until 4PM. This year’s festival aims to celebrate the uniqueness of Wilmington’s arts organizations and communities, while highlighting the monumental 50th anniversary of Hip Hop.

The celebration of the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop continues on September 22 at Frawley Stadium on the Wilmington Riverfront as The Grand presents the 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop Concert featuring Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Fat Joe, Big Daddy Kane, Doug E Fresh, EPMD, Rakim and Slick Rick! “This is truly unprecedented” says Universal Attractions Agency’s Co-Owner Jeff Epstein who conceived the collaboration with Doug E. Fresh. “To have such an elite group of Hip Hop icons from the golden era coming together to celebrate 50 years of Hip Hop music this way… it’s truly mind blowing.” The “OG ” Masters of Hip Hop are joining forces to perform all on stage together, backed by a single live band.
