The Central Astoria Local Development Coalition would like to take this opportunity to thank our official councilmembers and sponsors for the generous sponsorship throughout the 2016 Waterfront Concert Series and 2016 Movies on the Waterfront season. Without their support and great services, we would not have been able to put on these events. We were pleased to put on a total of 10 concerts and movies on Astoria Park’s Great Lawn for the enjoyment of the community here in Astoria and in greater New York City.

The nature of the films (Mary Poppins, Minions, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and Jaws) had something for all ages, and the concerts included many musical genres that encapsulated the diversity of Astoria. We would like to thank the performers, including The Devotions, Avalon Jazz Band, The Mary Lamont Band, Motor City Revue, Women of Pop & Rock, and Bon Journey for doing such a wonderful job and keeping the concertgoers entertained.

We would like to thank Council Members Costa Constantinides, Jimmy Van Bramer, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with city councilfor their support. We would also like to thank the following corporate sponsors for their support: NRG, Kaufman Astoria Studios, Astoria Bank, Thomas M. Quinn & Sons Funeral Home, Greiner-Maltz Investment Properties, Dunkin Donuts, and Atlantic Bank.See everyone next summer, where we will try to continue to bring the best in entertainment for the Astoria community.
