It looks like there WILL be a concert from the Portland Symphony Orchestra this 4th of July after all!

There was a big announcement and press conference Tuesday on the Eastern Prom in Portland to unveil Summerfest ME "Ending Hunger at Home."

This will the most epic concert in Maine history: A 24-hour virtual show with zillions of acts including the PSO, The Ghost of Paul Revere, Bell Systems, Amy Allen, and many, many more.

The show will be on Facebook Live on our radio stations' pages, WGME-TV, The Portland Press Herald, and many others.

Shamrock Sports and Entertainment here in Portland brought the PSO back to the Prom last year. But with no 4th of July gathering happening this year, the good folks at Shamrock were not going to be denied:

As our nation and our state adjusts to the reality of life during the COVID-19 pandemic and the continued need for social distancing, we wanted to do something that would bring joy to people while supporting a great cause,” said Brian Corcoran, CEO, and Founder of Shamrock Sports & Entertainment.


Proceeds from the event will benefit Full Plates Full Potential, a coalition of community leaders, stakeholders, and advocates working to end child hunger in Maine, and Good Shepherd Food Bank, Maine’s largest hunger-relief organization.

Get ready to watch, listen, and stream this 4th of July the best that Maine has to offer. And all for a great cause!
