Details for Williamsburg’s second-annual Coddiwomple Local Music Festival have been released.

The festival will be from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7 on the lawn of the DeWitt Wallace Decorative Arts Museum and will feature original music from eleven different songwriters.

Proceeds from the event, which is co-hosted by Iota Creative Collective and the Junior Woman’s Club of Williamsburg, will benefit The Arc of Greater Hampton Roads and The Richard E. & Janet L. DePaul Visual and Performing Arts Scholarship.

“To “coddiwomple” is to travel with purpose to a yet undiscovered or unknown destination,” the festival stated on its “About” page. “Iota Creative Collective pounced upon the possibility of developing a local, original music festival, that supports not only Iota’s mission to serve the community of Hampton Roads musicians, but gives back to other underserved communities through music, positive social impact initiatives, and charitable giving as well.”

Saturday’s music lineup includes:

  • Hoot&Annie
  • Nathan Lienard
  • Kari Velandria
  • Jonny Cardigan
  • Matt Thomas
  • The Fillmore Duo
  • Troy Breslow & The Company Band
  • The Peculiars
  • The Jason Cale Band
  • In Layman Terms

Drink vendors will include Billsburg Brewery, Virginia Beer Co., Alewerks Brewing Co., Precarious Beer Project and Copper Fox Distillery. A “hydration station” for those with reusable water bottles will also be accessible for  guests.

Those looking to pair some food with their beverages will have options from Old City Barbeque, Plaza Azteca, Uncle Russ’ Dockside Seafood Market and more.

Festivities go beyond food and drink.

Several local businesses will be on-site with vendor booths, including Retro Daddio, River City Rock Art, Taste Fire Hot Sauces, Harley-Davidson of Hampton Roads, “The Moose Riders” and Authentic Guitars. 

A hot yoga session will also start at 9 a.m.

Coddiwomple tickets range from $10 to $40, depending on which events the buyer wants to attend. A hot yoga “Yoga in the Park” pass can be bought separately for $15.30 to $17, which includes all-day general admission and a beer ticket.

VIP, music-only and general admission tickets are also available.
