An outdoor concert venue on 23 acres of land near Bug Light in South Portland could bring concerts and events to the waterfront as early as mid-June. At an upcoming planning board meeting (Feb. 25) property owner John Cacoulidis will ask the board to approve a modified site plan review and special exception use for the property. The proposed name of the site is ‘Liberty Ship Pavilion.’

Last fall a plan was proposed for the venue to be at the edge of Bug Light Park on land leased to the city by Portland Pipe Line Corp. This new proposal, like the original, lists the capacity for the venue at 10,000.

Assistant City Manager Jon Jennings has said most events would occur between Memorial Day and Labor Day and that shows would be required to end by 11 p.m.

This southern Maine site for possible concerts would be smaller than the Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor, but comparable to the Bank of America Pavilion on the waterfront in Boston.
