VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Additional small performing art pop-ups are coming to Virginia Beach as part of the new series, #VBArts on Tour.
The street-performer style ‘tour’ puts artists in neighborhoods, community markets, parks, and outside of key venues.
Organizers say this is a way to help the community reengage with live performances, support their favorite local artists, and bring small-scale, convenient concerts to all corners of the city.
