for the fourteenth and ninth consecutive years respectively, and the property
collected two American Business Awards for outstanding efforts in environmental
services and human resources.
The June entertainment slate was not to be outdone, as Foxwoods showcased its
deep lineup of diverse entertainment offerings with shows from Hollywood legend
Al Pacino, Australian sensation Thunder From Down Under, mind-bending magician
Michael Carbonaro and a jaw-dropping residency from Nik Wallenda’s Zirkus. The

July is already off to a hot start, as Patricia Elliott of Elmont, NY won the $1
million jackpot at Foxwoods’ annual Firecracker Bingo tournament, which also
marked the 30th anniversary of the property’s historic bingo hall. The Grand
Theater hosted show-stopping concerts from Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper and Joe
Perry’s rock super group Hollywood Vampires, folk luminary Bob Dylan, and neo
soul pioneer Maxwell. At the Fox Tower pool, celebrity DJ Pauly D turned the
tables for Independence Day weekend at Liquid Sundays, the Northeast’s only
Vegas-style pool party.
Throughout July, guests at Foxwoods can enjoy a slew of top-tier comedy acts
including Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Gaffigan and Steven Wright. For the classic rock
aficionados, Foreigner and Jeff Beck with Buddy Guy are set to take the stage at
Foxwoods’ state-of-the-art Grand Theater. The month will close out with a smooth
performance from award-winning jazz vocalist Robert Davi.
