To the patrons of the Blacksburg Summer Arts Festival:

Hello, and welcome to the website for the 2022 Blacksburg Summer Arts Festival! The wonderful Jane Harrison recently retired after 30 years of hard work as producer of the arts festival, so it is my privilege to welcome you to the 2022 festival.

There should be something for everyone this year! The lineup includes the traditional Friday night outdoor concerts with some musical friends old and new; a Thursday night indoor concert series including a big community sing; classic films with a new SILENT SATURDAY featuring guest pianist Ben Model; children’s activities with local storyteller, Joelle; visual art at the Perspectives Gallery, and more. As always, there will be our traditional Blacksburg events including the Fourth of July Celebration, the Summer Solstice Festival, and Steppin’ Out!

I hope everyone will come out and join us for concerts, celebrations, films, and more. All events of the Virginia Tech/Town of Blacksburg Summer Arts Festival are FREE and open to all members of the public

See you soon!

Richard Masters, Summer Arts Festival Director
