Virginia Symphony Concert

Saturday, September 1, 2018

The Virginia Symphony Orchestra will take to the Riverwalk Landing stage for this outdoor concert. Pack a picnic, bring a lawn chair or blanket, and try to get there early for this amazing night of music....

The award-winning Fifes and Drums of York Town will kick things off at 6 p.m. and blue ribbons will be awarded to the most creative picnic set-ups prior to the event. 

This event is funded by community contributors from organizations, businesses, and individuals along with the following sponsors: York County, York County Arts Commission, and the Virginia Commission for the Arts. The volunteer Celebrate Yorktown Committee of the Yorktown Foundation works diligently each year to raise the $24,000 needed to cover the cost of presenting this free-to-the-public evening of music for the enjoyment of the community. 

We anticipate large crowds for this special event and have a few important traffic reminders to keep in mind.

• Parking is available in the two-level garage on Water St., the York-Poquoson Courthouse, the County Administration Building, York Hall, and other designated public lots throughout town. 
• Handicapped parking is located on the lower level of the Water St. garage
• Event parking will also be available at the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown beginning at 5pm. 
• To ease the flow of traffic, no loading of any equipment, chairs, coolers, etc. into vehicles will be permitted during or at the conclusion of the concert at the corners of Water and Ballard St. and Water and Buckner St. 
• The Yorktown Trolley will also be unavailable during and after the concert. Service ends at 5:30 p.m.
