Freeman Arts Pavilion Upgrades Completed for Summer Season

SELBYVILLE, DELAWARE – JUNE 24, 2024 – Concert goers will enjoy brand-new amenities this season at the Freeman Arts Pavilion, including an upgraded canteen and brand-new restroom complex.  The upgraded canteen creates a permanent food service outlet for the venue, in addition to their rotating array of food trucks, and offers multiple service bays, complete with a dedicated pick-up counter. Guests can order at the window or skip the line and order online to receive text message confirmation when their order is ready at the pick-up window, allowing fans to savor even more precious moments of live entertainment at the popular concert venue.

The brand new + / – 1,700 square foot restroom complex is also sure to turn heads this summer.  All the details, down to the soap dispensers, were meticulously crafted to ensure maximum efficiency and user satisfaction. Massive concrete basin sinks, complete with automated, and illuminated water, soap and hand dryers at each station ensure the line moves quickly and smoothly with plenty of room for everyone to freshen up, without bottlenecks. Each restroom features wheelchair accessible stalls, and ambulatory accessible stalls. The facility also includes two family restrooms, and water fountain stations with water bottle filling capabilities. Plus, guests won’t miss a beat on their trip to the facility, with real-time music piped into the bathroom areas live from the stage. 

Gillis Gilkerson completed this season’s improvements on schedule, having also completed last year’s venue improvements that included the new box office, and entrance area.  Gillis Gilkerson Project Manager Robin Steininger, Superintendent Dale Reinhold and Executive Consultant Dwight Miller have worked hand-in-hand with Joshua M. Freeman Foundation leadership to ensure their phased development plans are completed on-time and on-budget. Gillis Gilkerson will continue to work with the Freeman Arts Pavilion and the Joshua M. Freeman Foundation over the next few years, as they realize additional rounds of improvements to the concert venue.
