Yorktown's 17th Annual Rhythms on the Riverwalk Concert Series

Yorktown’s 17th Annual Rhythms on the Riverwalk Concert Series kicks off  Thursday, September 9th. These free outdoor performances are 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday nights through mid-October. Visitors can expect several genres of music including country, jazz and yes—even a little bluegrass!


October 14: Good Shot Judy

This talented group plays some of the best songs written in the last hundred years—in a way that’s all their own. They put on a stellar performance every time they play in Yorktown—filling the Riverwalk with the smooth sounds of jazz, a little swing, and even some big band favorites! GSJ has opened for national acts like Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Squirrel Nut Zippers, and The Cherry Poppin’ Daddies.  



Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs. Coolers are permitted and many Historic Yorktown restaurants will be open before and after the concert for dine-in and takeout options. In addition, Boyd’s Tasty Dogs and Coastal Thirst food trucks will rotate service on the concert field, offering to-go snacks and meals.

Parking will not be available on the upper level of the Water Street Parking Terrace through October 1st and the lower level may also have limited capacity some evenings. This is so that required maintenance and structural repairs can be completed. On concert nights during parking terrace maintenance, a special shuttle will run attendees from the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown’s parking lot to Riverwalk Landing from 5:30 to 9 p.m. The free Yorktown Trolley will also be running until 9 p.m. on all concert nights to pick up visitors from other nearby public lots including those behind York Hall, the York-Poquoson Courthouse, and the County Administration Building.
