We’re excited for the first concert on May 25th!   The Band Line-Up is listed on the website!

The concerts are FREE and all are welcome! Bring your own lawn chairs (no tents unless you are a sponsor), blankets, food and drink – beer and wine allowed (BYOB). There will be a great selection of food trucks to purchase from or enjoy the music and dinner from one of Port Warwick restaurant patios.

Please consider contributing to the Port Warwick Foundation so that we can continue offering these fabulous concerts for all to enjoy. We are not a City entity but a private non-profit and provide these concerts through our generous sponsors and patrons and every little bit helps us to be able entertain you all summer long!  The Donate button is at the top right of the Home Page or contact the Port Warwick Foundation to learn how to become a sponsor. Thank you for your consideration.

ATTENTION – WEATHER POLICY: 

Our concerts are usually rain or shine with the late afternoon showers that are common during the summertime.  With Hampton Roads’ weather you can never tell what it will be from one minute to the next.  Nor’easters, hurricanes and prolonged days of rain result in the ground being saturated and pose a problem for the band and the sound engineer’s electrical equipment. Cancelations for these reasons are at our discretion and a decision will be made by 5:30 pm and will be posted on our website and  Facebook page.

Parking

Parking is available in the Sentara parking lot. Please follow the event parking signs for the entrance on concert nights. There is no parking in front of the Emergency Room and in any coned off areas. Sentara supports the concerts by allowing the use of their parking lot and we do not want to lose that privilege. Also, please use trash cans distributed at the entrance and middle for discarding any items.  Thank you.
