A Bangor Daily News article advancing this year’s Waterfront Concerts’ season cited a 2013 study conducted by University of Maine economics professor Todd Gabe. Gabe found more than 200,000 people had attended the series in its first three years, bringing more than $30 million into the local economy. Attendance figures had grown steadily each year. Waterfront Concerts promoter Alex Gray said an updated version of the report is in the process of being finalized and has been sent out for peer review.
