UPDATE: July 9th Concert will not take place at the Waterfront.
After evaluating Phase 3 guidelines released by Gov. Northam and as a precautionary measure, York County, Virginia has made the difficult decision to further delay the start of its Sounds of Summer concert series in the interest of public safety. This decision means the cancellation of both the July 9 performance featuring The Uptown Band and the July 16 performance featuring Strictly Bizzness.
The additional two-week window provides the opportunity to re-evaluate the logistics of navigating the newest restrictions, including the 1,000-person capacity for outdoor entertainment. These waterfront summer concerts typically draw much larger crowds, as illustrated here in a picture from that series.
Any further announcements will be posted to Visit Yorktown’s social media channels as well as www.visityorktown.org.

The Yorktown Trolley will run from 5 to 10 p.m. during every concert with a modified route that still includes some of the stops on the outskirts of town.
Due to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 pandemic—all York County sponsored and partner community events are subject to postponement or cancellation. This includes changes to dates, times, and locations.
