Masks & Music: Here’s what’s that all about

Local nonprofit CultureFix has partnered with the Williamsburg Area Restaurant Association to create the Masks & Music Pop- Up Concert Series.

DOG Street Boys will perform Tuesday from 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.; Wednesday from 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. Anvil Brothers will perform.

Gates open at 6 p.m.

These first two events will be across the street from Williamsburg Shopping Center in the grassy area next to Peter Chang’s restaurant, 1233 Richmond Road.

Parking will be available across the street at Chesapeake Bank, according to a news release from CultureFix.

CultureFix’s intention is to create a pop-up series that consists of eight music events every other Tuesday and Wednesday nights through the months of September and October.

The Williamsburg Area Restaurant Association has a list of local restaurants for attendees to order food to pick-up prior to the event or after.

Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased here.
