OUR Prior Year

Support Those Who Support YOUR Community

Elizabeth City is a very generous community of businesses and people. One of the main reasons Music on the Green at Mariners' Wharf has succeeded and grown over the years is because of the very generous financial and in-kind contributions of our sponsors. Most of our sponsors have supported MOG from the very beginning -- ten years ago. We thank them so very much and we ask YOU to take a moment to thank them personally, as well. Take note that all of these sponsors are local businesses or organizations. They are the heart of our community and we urge you to support THEM as they support YOU by helping to make our little town thrive culturally through events like this.
