Haddad Riverfront Park

It hosts special annual events and concerts, along with the occasional private gathering. The amphitheater seats up to 2,500 people with lovely views of the river and downtown Charleston. Boaters can dock at the riverfront park and watch the city activity from the peace of the water.

Free concerts are held at the park every Friday from Memorial Day weekend until Labor Day. The park is also the focal point for the Smoke on the Water Chili CookOff, the 4th of July Celebration, car shows, symphony performances and many other activities.

Haddad Riverfront Park features a retractable fabric canopy over the park’s existing seating area, a steel and fabric roof for the park’s new permanent stage and a canopy covering a new pavilion overlooking the Kanawha River.

Fireworks started 25 minutes late. Would have been nice to know that the children's activities we're no longer free. 15 dollars a wrist band for a free event? Don't seem to free to me!
