The handsome pop star kicks off four days of the "End of Summer Music Festival" at Kings Dominion this Labor Day weekend! The festival features different genres of music each day for people of all ages.
Jason Derulo takes the stage Friday night, August 29, at 6:30. He'll perform at the Kingswood Amphitheatre. (If you don't know where that is, just listen for all of the squealing young girls...) Tickets are still available through Ticketmaster or at the park's gates. Park admission is included in the price.
Other performers throughout this weekend include Kings of Swing, Diggity Dudes, and several bluegrass bands. (Saturday, Sunday, and Monday concerts are free to park guests!)
There are lots of things to do in a park - walk, run, eat...you get my drift.
This Saturday, you can add "enjoy opera music" to the list!
The Virginia Opera kicks off its 40th aniversary season with the 2nd annual "Opera in the Park." It will be held at Dogwood Dell, and the concert begins at 7:30. Expect to hear some of opera's most beloved works such as "La donna e mobile" from Rigoletto, as well as a few Broadway favorites.
Did I mention that this family-friendly event is free? Parking will be free as well. FREE. That word alone makes me sing like an angel!
Feel free (there I go using that word again) to bring your lawn chairs, picnic baskets, and coolers - filled with non-alcoholic beverages, of course.
I just made up this slogan, but it sums up the idea behind the annual WE CARE Festival. WE CARE is an acronym for Wellness, Education, Community Awareness,, and Resident Empowerment. The one-day event highlights the importance of community, showing that we can and must care about each other.
This year's festival will be held at the Hotchkiss Community Center on Saturday, August 23, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Organizers guarantee lots of fun with moon walks, good food, back-to-school giveaways, and more!
The smooth sounds of jazz remain in the air above Richmond!
The 7th annual Latin Jazz and Salsa Festival kicks into high gear on Saturday afternoon at the Dogwood Dell Amphitheatre.
It is always action-packed! If you don't believe me, check out this video from a few years ago:
Organizers guarantee this year's festival will be even better than previous festivals, with performances by Grammy Award winner Marlow Rosado, Ismael Rivera, Jr., Herbie Martinez, and more. There will also be dance performances by Latin Vintage and All America Dance!
