Construction of a new stage on Windsor’s Riverfront is progressing along for completion in time for this summer’s festival season.
The design of the new stage comes to us from local Windsor firm Architectural Design Associates in association with Michigan’s JPRA Architects and Windsor’s own Matthew Woods.

Originally intended as a simple replacement for the candy-striped dome stage — the staple of such concerts as Bluesfest — the City of Windsor sought to give the project 110% and reconstruct the entire festival area into a single civic gathering spot.
The new stage will face east (the old stage faces west), and will incorporate a raised pavilion for access to Riverside Drive and McDougall Avenue.
The stage is starting to take shape, and should be ready in time for festival season this summer.
