It’s summer! We had a colder-than-normal winter as well as a definitely very chilly spring and now it’s time to get outdoors and (forgive us, but we must…) PAAARTAAAYYY!!!
No party is a party without music. So come join Colonial Williamsburg for our annual free Summer Breeze concert series in Merchants Square on Duke of Gloucester Street. Williamsburg is celebrating the 85th anniversary of Merchants Square and so is kicking off this 22nd concert series season in June.
A concert takes place at 7 p.m. each Wednesday. The scheduled bands are:
June 19: Williamsburg Classic Jazz Orchestra
June 26: Party Fins (a Jimmy Buffet tribute band)
July 10: Butter
July 17: Kings of Swing
July 24: RareMixx (R&B)
July 31: Slapwater
August 7: TRADOC Army Band
August 14: Air Force Band (R&B)
August 21: Blue Aces
August 28: TRADOC Army Band
(U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army bands play each Wednesday in August.)
There’s no concert on Wednesday, July 3 due to the Independence Day holiday. Williamsburg will hold its annual Independence Day concert on July 2.
Williamsburg also will hold its annual Constitution Day Concert on Tuesday, September 17.
Bring a lawn chair, blankets and all the dancers in your family and among your circle of friends. Dancing is very much encouraged. If cutting a rug isn’t an option for you, toe tapping is required….
