The Summer Breeze outdoor concert series will return to the lawn of the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg in 2023 in a reimagined format. The series will feature an eclectic lineup of Americana, blues, country and brass bands curated in association with the Virginia Arts Festival. Additionally, boutique music ensembles and soloists will perform on select evenings throughout the summer in Merchants Square, providing the community with an elevated shopping and dining experience.
Since its inception in 1992, when it took place in Merchants Square, the Summer Breeze concert series has been supported financially by Colonial Williamsburg’s Merchants Square and the City of Williamsburg. The new format will provide the community with a unique musical experience and an opportunity to hear acts that don’t typically perform in Williamsburg. Merchants Square and the City of Williamsburg look forward to continuing to provide this series to the community in this reimagined format.
The Summer Breeze concert series will launch on July 3, Community Appreciation Day, with a concert from 7:30 – 8:45 p.m. on the lawn of the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg. Concerts are free and open to the public. Concert-goers are encouraged to bring their own chairs and picnic blankets.
