It’s almost time—we’re excited for the kickoff of “A Splash of the Arts” in downtown Hampton this Saturday, July 15. The day will be packed with performances and workshops by Arts for Learning’s musicians, artists, actors, storytellers, and dancers—programs just perfect for school-aged children and their families.
The FREE downtown Hampton arts and entertainment series runs from 10 am to 4 pm at the Hampton History Museum, 120 Old Hampton Lane in downtown Hampton. The series continues the next two Saturdays, July 22 and 29, with new programming each weekend. Check out the full schedule here!
And listen to musical instruments from different cultures and continents with Curtis Blues.
But there’s more!
Sail the Caribbean seas on the sound waves of steel drums with Gary Garlic….
And watch the remarkable portrayal of Frederick Douglass by Nathan Richardson.
Museum admission will be free to all from 9 am to 5 pm. There’s also free parking in the garage across the street from the museum.
This is the second year we’ve partnered with Hampton City Schools Fine Arts Department, the Hampton History Museum, and Downtown Hampton Development Partnership for this family-friendly series of arts programming. All programs are inside the air-conditioned museum. So get set to beat the heat and make a splash starting this Saturday, July 15!
