2nd Sundays Art & Music Festival
2nd Sunday of the Month, Starting March 10th, 2019
The Williamsburg Farmers Market has the food down, but what about the arts? We have something for that, too!
2nd Sundays is an monthly Art and Music Festival in downtown Williamsburg. And lucky for us, starting in March, 2nd Sundays will be kicking off their season once again.
As described by the name, this event occurs the second Sunday of every month and features local artists and musicians! This festival was created by Shirley Vermillion, a Virginia native and patron of the fine arts. She teamed up with the premier chef in Williamsburg Virginia, Chef David Everett, owner of three of the best restaurants in downtown Williamsburg. This festival takes over downtown, filling 4 city blocks with arts, handcrafts, and live performances from local musicians.
It goes without saying that this event is not to be missed. Check out what some of the locals have said…
Both of these events take place at Merchant’s Square in downtown Williamsburg, Virginia, just 2 miles down the road from Colonial Gardens Bed and Breakfast!
