    Heart-pounding spectacle … dazzling ballet … great concerts by famed pop, jazz, bluegrass, world, and classical artists … it’s all waiting for you at the 14th Annual Virginia Arts Festival, April 15 – May 30, 2010. For more than a decade, this acclaimed Festival has brought the world’s great artists to performance venues throughout the Hampton Roads area, making this beautiful region – already beloved for its white sand beaches, pristine waterways, wildlife, and historical attractions that date back to the earliest days of our country – a cultural destination for travelers from around the world.

    The central mid-Atlantic location makes this region an ideal location for a 48-hour or longer getaway!

    The big event is the Virginia International Tattoo. Presented in the grand tradition of the world’s oldest tattoos, this Tattoo is an all-American Show of patriotism and pride – one international sensation. The dynamic cast of more than 800 hails from several countries. The Tattoo has something for everyone. Count on marching bands like the Republic of Korea Traditional Army Band, choirs like the African Children’s Choir, drama like that of of the Reduced Shakespeare Company, and as always, surprise guests!

    Plan a weekend to soak in the talent of the Virginia Arts Festival.
