To all of our Wonderful Patrons of the Summer Arts Festival,

I am happy to announce that Virginia Tech and the Town of Blacksburg will once again present the Summer Arts Festival!  On Friday, June 25, 2021 our first outdoor concert will present Jimmy Parker (Nashville recording artist)!

It has been a difficult wait to see if we would be able to do the festival this summer.  The current situation has improved enough that we are once again going to be presenting concerts on Henderson Lawn, classic movies in the historic Lyric Theater, an art exhibit in the Perspective Gallery in the Squires Student Center, and special events such as Summer Solstice Festival, the Independence Day Celebration, and the Steppin' Out Street Festival.  I do hope everyone  will come out and join us for concerts, celebrations, movies, and the like as we begin the summer season here on the Virginia Tech campus and Downtown Blacksburg!!!  As always, all events of the Virginia Tech/Town of Blacksburg Summer Arts Festival are FREE and open to the public.  PLEASE REMEMBER TO WEAR A MASK IF YOU HAVE NOT YET BEEN VACCINATED!
