VSO musicians are back from summer vacation and tuning up to entertain you with enticing free outdoor concerts! Check out these family-friendly outdoor nights with the orchestra. Bring family and friends; bring picnic baskets, beach chairs and blankets.

Virginia Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Benjamin Rous, returns to Historic Yorktown at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 3 for its 15th annual outdoor concert at the Yorktown Victory Monument on Historic Main Street.

Attendees are encouraged to arrive early with lawn chairs and picnic baskets. A just-for-fun blue ribbon judging for the most creative picnic set-up will be awarded prior to the concert. The award-winning Fifes and Drums of York Town will perform a pre-concert show at 6 p.m. Vendors will be on-site with light picnic fare, hot dogs, desserts and soft drinks.

The symphony concert is funded by community contributors from organizations, businesses and individuals along with sponsors York County and the Virginia Commission for the Arts, whose financial support makes it possible. The volunteer Celebrate Yorktown Committee annually raises $25,000 to present this free-to-the-public evening of music for the enjoyment of the community.

Event parking information is as follows:

  • Plan to arrive early as parking is expected to fill up in Yorktown.
  • Event parking will be available at the York County Courts and Office Complex, Administration and York Hall buildings on Ballard Street, National Park Service Visitor Center, and the Riverwalk Landing Parking Terrace on Water Street.
  • Free handicapped-accessible trolley service will be available from these parking lots from 4 to 7:30 p.m. and beginning again at the conclusion of the concert.
  • Due to heavy traffic; the trolley will not service the Visitor Center. Guests wishing to park at the Visitor Center will have a short walk to the concert grounds.
  • Due to limited capacity, heavy pedestrian and vehicular traffic, the wait lines for the trolleys after the concert may be longer.

No rain date is scheduled for the concert. In the event of inclement weather, please call the event weather hotline at 890-3520 for updated information. For additional information, visit www.visityorktown.org or call 890-4490.
