Blues at the Beach

  • events

Summer may be over but don't tell the blues-loving crowds at Blues at the Beach, Virginia Beach's beloved outdoor concert series showcasing blues bands from around the corner and around the country. This family-friendly event kicks off at 17th Street Park just a short distance down the beach from Belvedere Beach Resort on September 5 and features two days of concerts on an outdoor stage.

Catch stars like Jarekus Singleton and Lil Ed & The Blues Imperials (Friday night) and the Bobby "Blackhat" Blues Band and Tommy Castro & The Painkillers (Saturday night). Available at the front gate, a two-day pass is just $8. For folks who want to fine-tune their bluesy craft, instrumental workshops are led by Natchel' Blues Network. Music + Beach = Endless Summer, at least in our song book.

Address: 17th Street Park, Virginia Beach
