YORK-Riverwalk Landing’s popular Blues, Brews, & BBQ festival and the Art at the River Juried Art Show return the first weekend in May following cancellations in 2020 due to the covid-19 pandemic.

The Blues, Brews, and BBQ festival will feature craft beer from more than a dozen brweries, barbeque dishes, and popular blues musicians in Hampton Roads on stage at Riverwalk Landing. Scheduled performers include Bobby Blackhat Band, Cole and MaryAnn Delta Blues, On the Verge, and Fade to Blue.

Limited tickets are available for the Blues, Brews, and BBQ festival. Due to covid-19 restrictions, the event will be held in two time slots: 11am to 2:30pm and again 3:30pm to 7pm.

Meanwhile, Art at the River will take place 10am to 4pm on Sunday, May 2. More than 40 local artists including painters, photographers, potters, jewelers, and other artists will line Riverwalk Landing to display their work during this juried art show event. Art on the River will also include live demonstrations with woodturning from the Tidewater Turners of Virginia as well as live entertainment including a special performance by The Fifes & Drums of Yorktown.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
